Wis. Elections Officials to Discuss Complaints

Created: 10/23/2012 6:59 AM KSTP.com By: Jennie Olson

Wisconsin state elections officials are scheduled to discuss what is allowable behavior at the polls following complaints from the Republican Party of Wisconsin and others about what happened during the June recalls and recently enacted policies.
    
The Government Accountability Board was scheduled to discuss the issue at its meeting Tuesday.
    
Some of the concerns involve what documents voters can show to prove their residence when registering at the polls and where election observers can stand.
    
The discussion comes in light of what the board says are several requests from organizations seeking permission to approve voters and verify whether they are registered or direct them to the correct voting line or other polling place.
