MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker plans to sign into law a bill that would allow election observers to stand as close as three feet away from the table where people register to vote and where they receive their ballot.

Walker's staff sent state lawmakers an email Tuesday notifying them that the governor planned to sign that bill and six others privately on Wednesday morning.

The Republican-sponsored election observer bill would change current law, which lets the chief inspector or municipal clerk designate areas for election observers to stand.

Walker also plans to sign a bill that would require that an equal number of poll workers as nominated by the Republican and Democratic parties serve as poll workers.
