Elections Board mulls action against private contractor

RYAN J. FOLEY

Associated Press

MADISON, Wis. - The state Elections Board is considering penalties against a contractor for delays that will cause Wisconsin to miss a federal mandate for creating a voter registration system.

The board met in closed session Wednesday to consider its options to force private contractor Accenture LLP to speed up the development of software needed for the new statewide system.

Wisconsin is the first state to acknowledge it will miss the Jan. 1 federal deadline for the system. As many as one-third of the states are expected to follow suit, said Doug Chapin, executive director of Electionline.org, a nonpartisan group tracking the process.

Wisconsin has a $13.9 million contract with Accenture to create the system, which is required under the federal Help America Vote Act. The company has missed some deadlines in the contract and its software has been plagued by errors.
