Washburn's World

My take on the world. My wife often refers to this as the WWW (Weird World of Washburn)

Washington County canvass may not be done

For those of you who think I only pick on the City and county of Milwaukee, here is the ongoing story of the mid-Moraine judicial race.

The same things in this race. Bags of ballots were not secured as required by law. Germantown district #1 had a legally faulty canvass which could have affected the margin by up to 3 votes.

The phrase "criminal incompetence" comes to mind. Say, Wendy at B&S has an interesting story about the community that didn't hold its election.

What is really bugging me now that I am digging into it is the phrase: "...except for those from the city of Hartford, where voters still push a lever to select a candidate and a machine tallies the votes."

WI state statute 5.91(18) clearly states no voting machine can be certified if it does not produce a piece of paper. Chapter 5.91 sets the minimum standards for certification of ballots and machines used in Wisconsin.

How the F**k is this piece of uncertified equipment still in use.

This is the WI State Election Board and Kevin Kennedy asleep at the switch.
