Local support for absentee ballot application mailings

State Representative Joel Kitchens and the League of Women Voters are in agreement over the Wisconsin Elections Commission decision to mail out absentee ballot applications for the fall contest to every registered voter.  Kitchens initially proposed the plan in legislation that stalled this spring in committee. In a press release this week, Kitchens said he was glad to see the concept resurrected. LWV Door County’s incoming President, Pat Scieszinski, says the group has long fought to make the ballot box accessible to all legal voters.

 


Scieszinski says she isn’t overly concerned about fraud. She concedes it does exist, but it’s a small percentage of the vote and outweighed by the damage resulting from disenfranchisement.
