Private property polling can be the guarantee to voter turnout while the courts play with the future of the USA.
Robin Voss, Republican head of the state assembly, is not pleased. His beef seems to be that the rules are not uniform across the state, and therefore early voting must be restricted (apparently especially in Milwaukee) to make sure everybody has the same chance to vote.
This would be fine, if it meant that everyone would have expanded early voting, but it is unlikely that is the case. In July, an earlier attempt to make voting access ‘more uniform’ was struck down by Judge James Peterson, who stated that the changes were specifically aimed at preventing African Americans from voting. He also ordered a follow-up investigation on whether local DMVs were following the correct procedures in issuing the ID that voters required.
Of course, Robin “Poutypants” Vos can’t let this go without looking into whether the state can challenge Peterson’s ruling....
