No Need to Prove Residency to Vote in Battleground Wisconsin
Despite election irregularities witnessed and reported during the Wisconsin recall election earlier this year, there is no need to prove residency in the state if one wants to register vote in this November’s contentious election.
According to Media Trackers, “Anyone who is in Wisconsin 20 days or more before an election can register to vote without proving they are indeed a resident.”
This vulnerability, due to the current state law, has many concerned over the integrity of the upcoming election. The Wisconsin Government Accountability Board has even promoted this gap of assurance in a fair election through its Twitter feed, encouraging people to register by today, October 17, with no need to prove residence.
