Call before 9:45am! State election law reform AB 895 automatically registers voters & hampers poll watchers

Bill AB 895 is whizzing through the State Legislature at an alarming speed, considering the negative impact to voters in our state. The bill is still in committee for another hour. They plan to vote on it at 9:45am, today, April 1st. (No, this is not an April Fools joke.) CALL COMMITTEE MEMBERS NOW!

Senate Committee on Labor, Elections and Urban Affairs

  • Sen. Spencer Coggs (D-Milwaukee), chairman and bill sponsor, (608) 266-2500
  • Sen. Bob Wirch (D-Pleasant Prairie), (608) 267-8979
  • Sen. John Lehman (D-Racine), (608) 266-1832
  • Sen. Alan Lasee (R-De Pere), (The number given is not working.)
  • Sen. Glenn Grothman (R-West Bend), (608) 266-7513
  • Assembly Speaker Mike Sheridan (D-Janesville), (608) 266-7503
  • Senate Majority Leader Russ Decker (D-Weston), (608) 266-2502
  • Gov. Jim Doyle, (608) 266-1212

This Election Overhaul bill will automatically register voters when they get their drivers licenses or register their cars. Another thing it does is prevent poll watchers from challenging a voter unless that poll watcher actually lives in the ward they are watching. There is also an online registration confirmation provision. These measures make voter fraud easier.

I asked Spencer Coggs aid how they would prevent legal aliens, who got drivers licenses or purchased a car, from being registered to vote. He said he didn't think they could get a license. (Oh, brother.)

Besides the potential for legal aliens, what about illegals? I personally witnessed an attempt of an illegal to get a drivers license and saw how the DMV worker pretty much just told him he needed a better copy (in other words, a better forgery) of his social security card. I don't think we want the DMV determining who gets put on the voter rolls!

The confirmation process of the auto registration in this bill seems like a whole lot of gobbledygook to me. How about we just get a photo Voter ID law and call it a day?

More on this later. It will probably pass committee and be on the Senate and Assembly floor before we know it. Argh.
