2008/09/24: Voter irregularity in Wisconsin - Action needed

Hundreds of thousands of legal voters are at risk - but utter silence from the McCain campaign.

Media are reporting Wisconsinites have received absentee ballot applications from the John McCain for President campaign with incorrect return addresses, which would likely prevent registration and processing from being completed.

We need answers about this McCain mailing immediately and we need a full investigation by law enforcement.

Sign the petition and demand an investigation today! Visit http://www.SaveWisconsinsVote.org.

Not only could this lead to voters failing to receive their absentee ballots, it also could cause chaos on election day as those who did not receive their ballots scramble  to cast their vote.

The easy solution would seem to be: check the records, inform people who received an incorrect application and make sure no one is disenfranchised.

But the McCain campaign refuses to tell us the exact number and won't even be interviewed about the scope of the problem. A top Republican Party of Wisconsin official said "hundreds of thousands" of absentee ballot applications have been mailed by the McCain campaign.

Hundreds of thousands of voters at risk. No answers. Draw your own conclusions.

Act now and sign the petition demanding an investigation into the faulty McCain absentee ballot applications.

We need a formal investigation. Just last week, Attorney General JB Van Hollen and Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm announced a new task force focusing on election issues. While the prudence of having Van Hollen, the McCain campaign state co-chair, is certainly up for question, the task force must investigate this matter and assure the public their right to vote is not being compromised by an intentional disenfranchisement scheme by the McCain campaign.

Fair and clean elections are a critical issue for the state of Wisconsin and protecting the right to vote is essential to our Democracy.

Act now and sign the petition to the Task Force and the Government Accountability Board below calling for an immediate investigation of the mailing. They must get to the bottom of this as soon as possible.

Time is critical, please act today.
