No ID Required
August 8, 2012
Doing the kind of work the mainstream media used to do, Media Trackers discovered about two dozen voter registration forms personally signed by the Racine County Clerk for the recent recall election. The forms were missing required information about how these suddenly-motivated voters proved their residency.
Did the clerk allow people to vote without showing residency? Or did she fail to follow the law requiring her to record that infomation?
The result is less ambiguous: Elections in the City of Racine are conducted in a way that casts doubt on the legitimacy of the election.
According to Media Trackers:
By ignoring or overlooking the proof of evidence boxes on the forms, Johnson-Martin failed to follow GAB protocol. Whether proof of residence was ever provided by the voters is open to question. Some of the forms contain redacted information suggesting that some form of proof was provided, but the two boxes that allow officials and the public to know that the proof was proper and in compliance with state law were left blank.
Other boxes denoting the ward and other information for the voter were also left blank by the Clerk.
The bottom line is that without voter ID we have no safeguards against voter fraud in Wisconsin.
