Practically Speaking

Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too. Kyle looks at things from the taxpayers' perspective in a creative, yet down to earth way, addressing them from a practical point of view.

Voter registration: Mark Belling vs. the City of Brookfield--and others

Every voter registration from August 6th into the future will be checked against the DMV database, no exceptions.  It will take us months to clean up after the Presidential election.  I forgot to mention that all mail in registrations, outside the late registration period,  receive a confirmation card from the State Election Board.  The return address is my office.  If the card comes back as undeliverable we remove the person from the polling list after checking that we did not make an error in putting in the information.

I have no data as yet as I have not had time.  I also have no press statement either.

Please call me with any questions.  We run various checks on the database and have done so since it's inception from 2006.  They may not have been HAVA checks, but they do check duplicate registrations, death notices, and felon lists.  People who mail in registrations have a higher proof in that if they were never registered in Wisconsin, they must send proof of residency.   If they do not, their name will appear on the polling list as ID required.  They will not be able to vote until they show proof of residency at the polling place.
