    MADISON, Wis. -- A court-ordered change to Wisconsin's photo identification law that's designed to cut down on voter fraud is creating confusion and may even open the door to the very type of behavior Republican lawmakers were trying to prevent. Policy makers, attorneys and voter ID experts were struggling Friday with how to interpret a Wisconsin Supreme Court ruling from a day earlier, which mandated a change to the law in order to make it constitutional. The court said the state can't require applicants for state-issued IDs to present government documents that cost money to obtain, such as a copy...

    Minneapolis Star-Tribune ^ | July 1, 2014 | Eric Roper and Rachel Stassen-Berger
    The Hennepin County attorney’s office is investigating whether a private mailbox center in Minneapolis’ Cedar-Riverside neighborhood has been improperly used as an address for more than 140 voters. State records show that 419 Cedar Avenue S. has been used by some of the voters as far back as 2008. No one lives at the address, which is a Somali-dominated commercial building housing several small businesses and a popular mail center. Several dozen apartments upstairs use a different building number. Records also show that more than 90 of the registrants at that address have voted in previous elections, although it’s unclear...

    A week ago the Hinds County Republican Executive Committee certified election results in the controversial House District 56 race. Philip Gunn lost to incumbent Jep Barbour by 17 votes. But Gunn says more than 200 Clinton-area voters weren't allowed to cast thier ballots because of well-documented election errors. Now many of those voters say they might take their frustration out on the governor's race. "I would be hardpressed voting Republican at this time," said Linne Godfrey. "Maybe I will, maybe I won't," said Reva Daniel. "Right now it would be difficult."

Van Hollen had promised an appeal as soon as U.S. District Judge Lynn Adelman in Milwaukee blocked the voter ID law for violating the U.S. Constitution and federal Voting Rights Act. Monday's filing puts the case before the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago. Van Hollen also asked Adelman to suspend his ruling while the appeal proceeds, saying his decision was too broad. In his ruling, Adelman expressed skepticism that any voter ID law could pass court muster...

    Critics of tough voter ID laws are running out of time and options in their efforts to knock down those barriers ahead of this year’s midterm elections. Opponents got good news last week, when a state judge struck down Arkansas’s law, and another jolt Tuesday, when a federal judge ruled Wisconsin’s law, which wasn’t yet in effect, was unconstitutional. But their enthusiasm could be short-lived. At least eight states are still slated to have strict photo ID requirements in place in November, leading voting rights advocates to send dire warnings about potential disenfranchisement at the polls this year. Yet on...

Obama argued that attempts in some states to impose new voter identification restrictions were actually efforts by Republicans to make “it harder, not easier to vote.” And the president said that while voter fraud should be prevented, it rarely occurred. “So let's be clear, the real voter fraud is the people...

David Lewis, a farm equipment dealer from Dunn and a Republican. “Having people...

The law provides free photo ID cards to registered voters and requires notifying voters of the requirement prior to the next election. The law takes into account the need to prevent voter fraud and provides state voters with free photo IDs if they do not already possess one. While the law seems to be...

Only a simple majority was needed in each chamber. "We are trying to protect the integrity of one of the most fundamental rights we have here in America," said state Rep.

How predictable and tiresome these Democrats are! They loudly deny there is any problem of election fraud and then bend over backward to make sure election fraud is easier to commit. If there is no election and voter fraud occurring, then what’s the harm in requiring voter ID? Yes, we know the answer to that. Gov. Beebe claims his “reasons” for the veto are that the law would cost the state too much (it wouldn’t) and that...

    a total of four Democratic officials and political operatives have now pleaded guilty to voter fraud-related felony charges in an alleged scheme to steal a New York election. The latest guilty pleas expose the ease with which political insiders can apparently manipulate the electoral system and throw an election their way, by the forging of signatures of unsuspecting voters that are then cast as real votes.

    There is a problem with Election Day registrations: the people registering are not checked for eligibility before their votes are counted. That is why the Minnesota Voters Alliance and other plaintiffs are before the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals, arguing that Minnesota must confirm the eligibility of all voters before counting their ballots. That includes the more than 500,000 who register on Election Day in presidential-election years. Our lawsuit is based on the plain text of Article VII, Section 1 of the Minnesota Constitution, which says, "The following persons shall not be entitled or permitted to vote at any election...

    Democrat Melowese Richardson has been an official poll worker for the last quarter century and registered thousands of people to vote last year. She candidly admitted to Cincinnati’s Channel 9 this week that she voted twice in the last election. Richardson insists she has done nothing wrong and promises to contest the charges: “I’ll fight it for Mr. Obama and for Mr. Obama’s right to sit as president of the United States.”

    I was engaged in a conversation regarding the future of health care in America when a third person (W) gave her opinion that she was happy with ObamaCare since her son could now get insurance. In New York State the cooperatives will not begin until Oct 1, 2013 for those without any other options. However, her son does not live in New York, where the state has provided Healthy New York insurance to those who qualify. We then had a conversation which I will relate. It demonstrates the severe problem facing our country resulting from the poor educational system we...

    4 criminal incidents: man arrested for forgery in Jaljuliya. As Israelis went to the polls on Tuesday, the Central Elections Committee announced that by 4 p.m., 46.6% of Israelis had voted, compared with 39.0% at the same point in 2006. The police reported that by late afternoon they had received approximately 350 reports about irregularities or possible voter fraud that they were investigating, but the day was generally free of major issues. Police only reported three criminal incidents. In the Arab town of Jaljuliya, next to Hod Hasharon, a man who was overseeing the polling at his station was arrested...

    SANTA FE -- State Rep. Cathrynn Brown, reversing herself based on her constituents' wishes, said Wednesday she will introduce a bill requiring identification to vote. Brown, R-Carlsbad, had said only two weeks ago that she would not offer a voter ID bill this session because it had no chance to pass. "I changed my mind after hearing from my constituents," she said in an interview. "The prevailing view is that election integrity is too important not to do anything."

    A poll by the Washington Post in 2012 indicates that “Almost three-quarters of all Americans support the idea that people should have to show photo identification to vote, even though they are nearly as concerned about voter suppression as they are about fraud in presidential elections, according to a new Washington Post poll.”

    An advocacy group claims Ramsey County is withholding election records it has released in the past, but county officials say the material will be made available, though in a different form. Minnesota Majority President Dan McGrath released a statement Thursday, Jan. 3, accusing the county of trying to "hide election records from the public." After the 2008 election, the group got access to materials submitted by voters who registered on Election Day, McGrath said, but similar information from the 2012 election is not being provided.

Smith has also agreed to vacate his seat, effective Jan. 1, and not seek elective office for five years from the date of his sentencing. A plea date has not been set. Smith did not return messages seeking comment Thursday. One of his...
