Voter Fraud: Did Your Dead Uncle Vote in 2009?

This Week in Fighting Voter Fraud:

Find out at

In the 2008 election, Barb Struck of Ozaukee County discovered that her deceased mother’s name was still on the polling list.  In an attempt to have her mother’s name removed she discovered her mother voted in a previous election after she had passes away!  What a surprise, her mother was always determined but this was beyond the pale!  So Barb went about getting the name taken off the list and after communicating with the Government Accountability Board, the name was finally removed.

Now it’s your turn, do you know someone who may still be listed on the state voter registration list and shouldn’t be?  There is an easy way to find out; this is how you do it:

There is a very valuable tool on the internet called “VPA” – Voter Public Access( ).  By entering a name and birthdate you can check the voting status of your mother, father, children, aunts, uncles, all of your family and friends, living, deceased, or those who have moved to another area.  Who knows, you may discover that someone who died or moved out of state is still voting!   If so, call your municipal clerk (Google: “wis municipal clerks” for name and contact information) and have the incorrect name removed from the list.  If the “name” is in another municipality call the Government Accountability Board at 608-266-8005.

While you’re at it, why don’t you call your municipal clerk or GAB and ask them for all the names registered at your address?  If there are incorrect names, ask them to have them removed. 

IMPORTANT:  In both of the above scenarios, if you have found an incorrect registration, you can ask if that “name” voted in any of the last elections.  Or you can enter the name and birthdate into , click on the name, scroll down to “View Your Voting History” and determine if this “name” voted in past elections. 

If there was a vote, A FELONY has been committed.  We encourage you to file a criminal complaint at your local district attorney’s office.  Make sure your D.A. copies you, as well as Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen. 

Right now, there are 70,000 names on the statewide voter registration list that have failed the required identification checks, but the Government Accountability Board is hesitant to take these names off because they might “disenfranchise” someone.  Never mind the fact that these people could simply reregister if their names were removed in error.  Names that no longer should be on the list are still “active” and can be used by those who do not play by the rules.
