55. Wisconsin Authorities Form Team to Fight Election Fraud
Wis., Milwaukee Authorities Form Team To Fight Election Fraud
State Recognized For Election, Voting Laws

POSTED: 7:19 am CDT September 17, 2008

MADISON, Wis. -- With only seven weeks to go until the presidential election on Nov. 4, authorities said a task force including state agents and Milwaukee police is being formed to fight election fraud.

Plans for the task force are to be announced Wednesday.

It's expected to include agents from the state Department of Justice and investigators from the Milwaukee police force to look into any possible fraud in the November election.

Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen and Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm are working together on the task force.

The move comes as a nonpartisan watchdog group has recognized Wisconsin as having the best voting and election laws out of 10 swing states in the presidential election.

The report by Common Cause praises the state's poll worker training standards, its requirements for one voting booth for every 200 registered voters and its voter registration at the polls.

Along with Wisconsin, Common Cause studied the laws in Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Missouri, New Mexico, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
