“As a Wisconsinite and also a poll worker...I say that same day registration is not that big of a deal. This presidential election we had about 6 or 7 seniors from our high school come in and they registered people and also greeted them and directed them to the right line.
They were great and they received special credit for their government class to do this.
We have a great group of people and we had a huge turnout. No one was getting upset. I've worked polls for many years and have never ever seen any dubious "same day voters". This has been a Wisconsin law for over 40 years.”

“I've seen the opposite from you describe and I live in a medium to small community!
This past election had "new voters" lined up 30 or more deep!
It made no sense that there were suddenly so many new - same day - voters!
This community doesn't "turnover" residents like that.”
“wordenreport: Just for you information...Walker got his job as county executive in Milwaukee due to...wait for it...a RECALL!! So it's ok then right? Also if you would read Wisconsin's constitution you would see that recalling elected officials is in it.”
“czar1030...gee voting is a right guaranteed by the Constitution, driving a boat or a car or even a plane is a privledge not guaranteed in the Constitution, big difference there. In my state of Wisconsin there has never been issues of voter fraud as far back as I can remember. This is all a made up effort in order to suppress the vote. If it were such a big deal (voter fraud), then how come this law was never passed before Walker?”

“So is buying a firearm guaranteed by the Constitution. Why wouldn't you want that individual to provide proof of identity and eligibility?”

“Yes it isa, but then it should not be an issue to prove that you are who you say you are if you are entitled to do so. Even the Wisconsin Constitution revokes that right to vote if you are a convicted felon. So, do you think cashing a check at the bank might be important enough to require proof of eligibility? Because I feel at least the election of Officials is even more critical as the descisions they make, good or bad have far more reaching effects, the right to vote should be treated at least as important as driving or for that matter pruchasing a firearm. Pretty sure that you would want some form of Photo ID there. By the way, voter fraud numbers are actually very low, but then so are the actual people who drive cars, boats, planes, and purchase firearms illegally. I would still want proof.”
“alan...I live in the Appleton area and I have not heard one thing about the GAB uncovering "mounds" of duplicated sheets. In fact I watch the news everynight sometimes twice a night and haven't heard it on any station. WLUK(fox) WBAY, WFRV, WISN...none of them. In fact it's not even in my local paper. Appletonpostcrescent.com.”
“Liz in Brooklyn...there are fans only when it suits there needs. When Walker was Milwaukee Co Executive, he got that job by...you guessed it a recall!. These Republicans in my beloved state will stop at nothing and I mean nothing to keep this guy in office. Now that they (GAB) have posted all of the people who signed the recall petitions on line I think it's going to get alot uglier.”
“provide us a link. I live in Wisconsin and haven't heard of any sort of "long" history of voter fraud. That's the problem with people like you....you think if you spout your right wing propaganda long enough it automatically becomes fact. Not so.”
“billbb....You are right, cold weather will not stop us Wisconsinites!! It's the middle of December and we have no snow on the ground at all here in Appleton. It almost feels like spring around here. We will perservere and Walker will be gone! On Wisconsin.”
“consequence...we are talking about Wisconsin...you do not go to the courthouse to get a ID. You go to the Department of Motor Vehicles. They do not accept utility bills,phone bills or notes from your parents.”
“for one thing here in Wisconsin we don't go to the court house to get a FREE photo ID, we go to the DMV. The DMV also requires proof...as in a birth certificate to get one of these free ID's. They do not take utility bills or phone bills!! And if you do not have a birth certificate for any number of reasons, then you must pay to get one. So that means you are paying to vote, which is illegal. We have never had to show a photo ID here in Wisconsin. I have worked at the polls for many years and this is absurd.”

“So you are ok with non-citizens to vote and therefore disenfranchise LEGAL citizen's votes? Because that is exactly what is happening.”
“You are so wrong Rightfoot1...I live in the good state of Wisconsin (Go Packers), and I do not love Walker. I do not belong to a union, and I am not part of the liberal media. I am a middle class citizen, who is sick of Walker and his cronies ruining our state.”
“I agree. You know if this is the case with Rev. Wright, why not discuss other pastors and their houses and how big they are. What a joke. So what if his house has a 4 car garage and a large family room. Big F...ing deal!!! The guy served our country doesn't he deserve something nice to live in?”
“what a joke. enough already. First we had Barack Obama changed his name, then he went bowling, then he wasn't a professor, now we have handwriting analysis. What the hell is this, some kind of kindergarten playground crap? Let's report on the stories that matter like Iraq!!!!!! This is just getting more and more pathetic everyday. Stick to the issues, not some juvenile bs!!!!!!”
“how can she get by with saying this? Doesn't she think that anyone will check this out? I don't understand her logic or should I say lack of logic.
Also if someone could help me out here: I don't really understand what exactly PAC's are. Could someone explain it to me. Thanks”
