    To achieve this first you would need to increase width of your widget to 650 inside of properties option of that widget. 

    Then inject this CSS code inside of Checklist widget Custom CSS field: 

    .checklist li:nth-child(odd) {

       width: 50%;

       border-right: 1px solid lightgray;

       box-sizing: border-box;


    .checklist li:nth-child(even) {


       width: 50%;

       top: -1px;

       box-sizing: border-box;

       border-left: 1px solid lightgray;


    After that you form will look like this.
