For anyone who's interested in trying to help stop the Voter ID bill, this is what you can do: EMAIL, CALL or VISIT your Senate and Assembly representatives and tell them why they shouldn't vote for this bill. The number one reason? It's not fiscally responsible. We're in a "budget crisis," yet we can spend $6 million to solve a problem that doesn't exist? That doesn't make sense.

As voter ID bill heads toward passage, the only certainty is a high price tag

Posted on Facebook by | 540,000 To See Scott Walker out of WI, January 2012

"This is something that 80 percent of people agree with," Fitzgerald said. I think this is one of those things that sounds logical the first time you hear it, but as soon as you start looking into it and you consider the different types of people we have voting throughout the state and the general inconvenience it will cause, you can start to see why this is a bad idea.
As voter ID bill heads toward passage, the only certainty is a high price tag
host.madison.com
Wisconsin's bill, according to the Legislative Fiscal Bureau, would cost more than $5.7 million to implement. The measure would require voters to use a driver's license, state ID, military ID, passport, naturalization papers or tribal ID at the polls.

Five out of six bags of ballots from first batch to be counted out of the City of Brookfield in Waukesha County, WI, today were discovered "almost wide open" during Day 9 of the statewide Supreme Court election "recount." The bags were open and unsealed, according to both photographic evidence and an eye-witnesses account from the counting room. (Lastest updates and | exclusive photos here.)

""Hotz said poorly sealed bags or torn bags appear to be a common problem, but they were evident on five of six Brookfield bags that were counted first thing Thursday. He objected to the counting of those ballots where bags appeared to be open.

Brandon O'Bryon, representing Justice David Prosser, objected to the objection, saying Brookfield voters would be disenfranchised if their votes weren't counted." jsonline
