I just got back from voting in the WI Primary!

I have NEVER seen that many people there before - the parking lot is never full, but people were parking all over the place, illegally because there were no spaces in the parking lot.

They are saying Dane County (Madison) turnout could approach 70%.

When we have high turnout, we WIN! - Bernie Sanders

3. Are you hearing anything about thousands of voters being turned away?

 

The other day I read something that indicated that Hillary's campaign was positively ecstatic about possibly 300,000 voters could be turned away due to the voting restrictions. Those voters won't show up for Hillary, IMO, if she is the nominee. Even if she feels sorry for them.

4. Here's a funny - CNN was talking about Trump v Cruz (Of COURSE!) & they had one of their

correspondents at a polling place in WI to ask exit polling questions about the Repug race....

and the correspondent said, I can't find any Republicans, everyone here is a Democrat!

I ask because a lot of places deliberately separate the party primaries, and some correspondents are dim bulbs...

But... I have seen more Bernie than Hillary.

It looked pretty good at the Feel the Bern Rose Parade March! Did you see my report on that?

Sadly, I've been working every day for the last month as my new project overlapped with my old one so I haven't been able to volunteer since the one phone banking day I did. I'm hoping to slow down now and get back to Bernin'!!!

45. Wisconsin Adds Momentum To The Sanders Revolution

http://www.commondreams.org/views/2016/04/06/wisconsin-adds-momentum-sanders-revolution

Bernie Sanders swamped Hillary Clinton in the Wisconsin Democratic primary Tuesday. Ted Cruz won big over Donald Trump on the Republican side. The chances for a contested Republican convention increased markedly. And Sanders’ momentum in the Democratic race continues to gather strength.

The margin of Sanders victory – 56.5 percent to 43.1 percent – surprised. He ran even with Clinton among Democrats and slaughtered her among independents (by a 40-point margin) who chose to vote in the Democratic primary. He ran even among women, and enjoyed a big lead among men. Once more he won young voters by staggering margins – 82 to 18 percent among those 18-29, two to one among those 30-44. He lost African American voters, but won young nonwhite voters 54-44. (For analysis of exit poll data go here and here).

Wisconsin voters reflected the attitudes that have largely defined this race. Those most concerned about honesty and trustworthiness or a candidate who cares about “people like me” went for Sanders. Those who valued experience or electability went with Clinton. The economy remained the most important issue, with three-fourths of Democratic voters worried about the direction of the country, and 40 percent fearful that their children will not fare as well as they have.

46. Wisconsin’s Voter ID Law Caused Major Problems at the Polls Last Night


http://www.thenation.com/article/wisconsins-voter-id-law-caused-major-problems-at-the-polls-last-night/

Hatten spent months trying to get a voter ID and then had to make multiple trips to the polls to vote. Meanwhile, students waited hours to cast a ballot at Marquette, in addition to long waits at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and University of Wisconsin–Green Bay. Others left the polls because of the long lines or didn’t get to vote because of the voter-ID law.

Hatten, a 53-year-old African-American man, moved to Wisconsin from Illinois in 2013 after losing his job as a powder coater. A veteran of the Marines, he relocated to Milwaukee to seek help from the VA hospital, which put him up in temporary housing while he was homeless. He wanted to vote in Wisconsin, but his Illinois driver’s license was not accepted under the state’s strict voter-ID law, nor was his veteran’s ID at the time.

In August of 2015, he met Anita Johnson, Wisconsin coordinator of VoteRiders, who helped him try to get a photo ID for voting in Wisconsin. It became a bureaucratic nightmare. The DMV rejected Hatten’s application for a free ID because he didn’t have a birth certificate. After Johnson resubmitted his hospital and birth records, the DMV said the birthdate didn’t match. Finally, Johnson discovered that Hatten was delivered by a French midwife in Arkansas, who spelled his name D’Nette instead of Dennis, but the DMV said Hatten would need to change his name through the Social Security Administration to get an ID for voting.

After a lengthy back-and-forth with the DMV, Johnson discovered that Hatten had used the name D’Nette when he first applied for a Social Security card, which allowed the DMV to finally verify his identify and issue Hatten a state photo ID. “If Dennis didn’t have someone to advocate for him, he would have given up,” Johnson said.
