Public Meeting On Voter ID Scheduled In South Milwaukee

It’s a ways off, but mark your calendars for Thursday, Jan. 19, when election experts from the Government Accountability Board will hold a public meeting in South Milwaukee about the state’s new voter photo ID law.

The meeting, hosted by the city clerk’s office, is from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at City Hall.

Thanks to City Clerk Jim Shelenske for scheduling  this session. The voter ID law is complicated, and there are bound to be questions as the spring elections draw near. It’s good to get out in front of them as best we can, and sessions like this will help.

In the meantime, there is information on voting on the election information page on the city’s website.

    I guess I’m trying to figure out how getting an I.D. is such a hard process. A simple call or web check to find out what kind of documentation is needed before you head out seems pretty straight forward to me. If the DMV is scrutinizing the way the take I.D. requests, then bravo! It’s about time to make the attempt to fraudulently vote much harder for the criminals. Our state is finally on the right track!
