Voter purge drama not affecting local voters

The court challenges over whether 209,000 Wisconsin voter registrations should be purged is not fazing Door County voters.  Ozaukee County Circuit Court Judge Paul Malloy this week found the State Elections Commission in contempt for not complying with his December order to remove the names of voters who may have moved from their listed addresses.  That order was stayed by the Wisconsin Court of Appeals.  County and local elections officials will have to abide by whatever final decision is reached in this case.  Door County Clerk Jill Lau, however, says local voters aren't acting too concerned about this legal standoff.


The challenge over the question of the legality of the 209,000 voter registrations was raised by the conservative-leaning Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty.  It claims that such votes from outdated addresses would be invalid.
