    Milwaukke Journal Sentinel ^ | 14 November 2011 | Jason Stein
    The American Civil Liberties Union sued the State of Wisconsin on Tuesday over a new law requiring voters to show government-issued photo identification, charging that the measure violates the U.S. Constitution. The lawsuit says that the state is infringing on some citizens' right to vote and to be treated equally under the law and amounts to a kind of poll tax on voters who lack the documents needed to get an approved ID. Republican lawmakers and Gov. Scott Walker, who is named in the lawsuit along with a long list of other state officials, have said they believe the measure...

    Just heard on the radio that a heavily republican precinct in NM district 1 (Wilson / Madrid race) had only 150 printed ballots this morining. As of 7 AM, there were over 200 people in line to vote. This is a mostly GOP-favorable precinct. The poll workers were actucally turning people away, telling them they'll call them (yeah, right) when new ballots are available. Heather Wilson was interviewed and she said it is criminal to have so few ballots (150 for over 2000 registered voters) for this polling location (this problem wasn't reported for Dem-leaning locations, of course).

Prosecutor Bill Gibbons said his investigation found no evidence of a widespread conspiracy to throw the election to either candidate.

    A top aide to Cook County Board President John Stroger faces questioning about why she was inside a suburban polling place Friday, allegedly guiding elderly voters through their ballots and posing as an election official. Betty Hancock Perry explained she was "trying to help voters" at the Lydia Healthcare Center in Robbins, election officials said. But those who observed her say she was helping them cast votes for her boss and discouraging votes for challenger Forrest Claypool. She gained access, they say, by assuring them she was an election judge hired by Cook County. As officials with the county clerk...

    MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) At least 68 people recorded as voting in Shelby County between 1994 and 2004 were dead at the time the ballots were cast, a television station reported. The investigation by WMC-TV uncovered several names of voters, which according to Shelby County Election Commission records, cast ballots as much as eight and 10 years after federal records show they died. I certainly have no idea how any of this could have happened, commission administrator James Johnson said. He said he would turn the results of the stations investigation over to the district attorney for further investigation. Prosecutors...

    There's no better example of that apathy or appeasement in Detroit politics than in the apparent acceptance of city Clerk Jackie Currie's continued antics. Currie has spent a lot of time in court these days defending an out-of-control city election system ripe for abuse and corruption. In recent days we've learned that Currie employs a group of 50 "ambassadors" who round up between 4,500 and 8,000 absentee ballots -- and apparently break a variety of state election laws in the process. According to media reports, Currie's assistants have secured absentee ballots from mentally incapacitated people who have no idea who's...
