MADISON - Gov. Tony Evers vetoed election bills Tuesday that would have required Wisconsinites to fill out more paperwork to vote absentee and said county officials should refuse efforts from a Republican lawmaker to seize their ballots and voting machines.

Evers had long signaled he would veto the six measures, which he and other Democrats have said would make it harder for people to vote.

In recent years, we (have been) used as a petri dish for Republican plans to undermine democracy. Well, not anymore. Not today. Not anymore today. Not as long as Im governor of the great state of Wisconsin, Evers said at a ceremony in the Capitol rotunda.

He vetoed the bills days after a Republican lawmaker attempted to seize ballots and voting machines in Brown and Milwaukee counties. Evers questioned the validity of subpoenas issued by Republican Rep. Janel Brandtjen of Menomonee Falls and said county election officials should refuse to comply with them.

"The answer would be hell no," he told reporters.
