El. Bd. Op. 76-14 (Revised 6/9/08)
Disclaimers; Political Advertising: Roadside billboards carrying political
advertisements must carry disclaimers readable from the road; the party designing,
printing and erecting such billboard and the source of the advertisement are each
subject to the disclaimer requirement. §11.30 (2), Stats. (Issued to Sandra Hafenbraedl,
September 16, 1976)
This opinion was reviewed by the Government Accountability Board pursuant to 2007
Wisconsin Act 1 and was revised to remove portions of the opinion relating to the liability of
communications media providers. 1979 Wisconsin Act 328 exempted communications media
from liability if they relied on the person who placed the advertisement’s assertion that the
disclaimer was inapplicable. §11.30(2)(i), Stats. The opinion below was reaffirmed by the
Government Accountability Board on June 9, 2008 and fully incorporates the revisions
directed by the G.A.B.
The statements required to be affixed to political communications by this section will be
referred to collectively as a "disclaimer." In your first two questions, you ask whether a
roadside billboard is required by §11.30 (2) to carry a disclaimer which is readable from the
Section 11.30 (2) requires that the source of all political communications "clearly appear
thereon." That language indicates a legislative intent to require that a disclaimer be readable by
those exposed to a political communication.
In addition, a disclaimer provides those exposed to a political communication with information
which is significant for several reasons. Among them are: (1) The information aids the public in
understanding the relationship between particular candidates and organizations and understanding
the public positions taken by a candidate or organization, (2) The information aids the public in
determining the weight that should be accorded a political communication, (3) The information
protects a candidate from association by the voters with groups with whom he should not be
associated and ideas which he does not espouse.
In the light of the apparent purposes of the statute and the statutory language requiring that the
source "clearly appear" on the communication, the Board is of the opinion that a billboard
alongside a road should carry a disclaimer which is readable from the road.
