Clerk Scott McDonell said Friday that he decided to use a ballot with shading to differentiate the offices and candidates, something the model ballot doesn't have. He says staff at the Government Accountability Board don't have the authority to tell him not to do that.

The Dane County Clerk is not using the newly redesigned state ballots that are now the subject of a lawsuit Republican lawmakers filed against the Government Accountability Board earlier this week. "I looked at the new GAB version, I looked at the versions that had been used for many elections in a row, and I just thought the older version was easier to read," said Dane County Clerk Scott McDonell, who says he made his decision well before the GOP filed its lawsuit.

A radio frequency of the state's WISCOM emergency communication system, combined with a new state radio procedure put in place this summer, appears to have caused the radio failures some first responders across Dane County have been reporting, according to a memo by Dane County 911 Director John Dejung. During Wednesday afternoon's 911 Board meeting, it was revealed Stoughton, Mount Horeb and Blue Mounds' police departments had experienced repeated radio interference since earlier this summer.
