Main article: Campaign finance requirements for Wisconsin ballot measures

The Attorney General of Wisconsin is responsible for criminal prosecutions of the state's campaign finance laws. The first step is to file a complaint with the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board.

The Government Accountability Board is responsible for prosecuting all civil violations under the law. [1]
