3. I wouldn't jump to conclusions here...
I strongly agree that there has to be transparency in voting and a paper trail and sure it is possible there was voting fraud in Wisconsin.

But, this could really be a test tape run at that time. Having worked on elections in a different state I know that those who prepare the voting machines run tests in the days leading up to the election and that they are under a significant amount of pressure to reach inflexible deadlines. I could imagine someone working late into the night verifying machines. If you just have to get the job done, you do it regardless of the clock. Just sayin'
