"One Out of Five Voters Failed The Data Check."
Edited on Sat Sep-20-08 08:33 PM by garybeck
I'm speechless.



State suit could affect 1 million voters

Wisconsin Attorney General Van Hollen sued the state Government Accountability Board Wednesday, saying it must crosscheck voter names with driver's license records for ... everyone who filed registration papers on or after Jan. 1, 2006 - more than 1 million people.

...snip...

Board officials say it is common for voters to have data that does not match for innocent reasons, such as missing middle initials or mistyped driver's license IDs. One in five voters who registered to vote last month initially failed the data check.

Van Hollen has said he is asking a court to require clerks to make the checks, but not to force the board to remove anyone from voter rolls if they fail the checks. But critics are questioning that because Van Hollen's suit asks a Dane County judge to issue an order "to remove ineligible voters" from the voters list.

One in 5 voters?

Missing middle initial?

This is how they make sure dead people and felons don't vote?




So the Wisconsin Attorney General is playing Blackwell... isn't that nice.

This just boils my blood.

1. This should be Wisconsin, NOT Michigan
Not that we don't have our own problems, but this isn't us.

it's hard to keep track of all the shenanigans. I wish it were only happening in one state. It's full time job to keep track of all this shit.

3. They're Doing It In Florida Too
I mean, the Republicans didn't think we were enough of an embarrasment in 2000, they have to screw up things again. Just think of all those Democrats who voted for Charlie Crist in 2006 because he was moderate. Well, Crist may be moderate on a lot of things, but apparently he is still Republican enough to help steal the state for the Republicans.
