A plea for poll watchers to avert voter fraud

Elections, Voter fraud

At yesterday's McCain/Palin Town Hall meeting, a person from Milwaukee County's Republican Party passed out info to the waiting crowd: "Your VOTE is being STOLEN!" It gave some information about the problem of voter fraud.

"National activist groups such as ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now), come to Milwaukee and members have been charged with padding the voter list by adding fake names. Once these fake names are on the voter lists, they can be voted by people claiming to be that person."

It mentioned Obama's associations with Project Vote, a subsidiary of ACORN, and how local municipal clerks are saying they don't have the time to follow the laws of the United States. It ended with,

"Concerned? You should be. Want to help? Contact 414-727-0008" 

I called the Milwaukee Republican Party for more information. The woman who answered the phone said they were looking for poll watchers. (She suggested you bring your own chair.) I asked if this was to identify declared Republican voters, as they did in 2004 or if it was to look for voter registration irregularities. She said it was to check on registration irregularities.

The Waukesha office said that the poll watchers duties were to check if their base was voting but also to make sure people did not vote twice.  

If you wan to help, call your campaign headquarters and volunteer. The Waukesha office number is 262-542-8532
