Blogger Ann Althouse, who resides in Wisconsin, received in the mail a list of her neighbors, their addresses, and
whether they voted in the last couple elections. Preceding the list is the
Dear Registered Voter:The mailing came from a leftist outfit called the Greater Wisconsin Political Fund, whose members and supporters presumably don't mind everyone knowing who funds them. With Scott Walker's recall election looming, this creepy mailing reeks -- as several commenters at Althouse have indicated -- of both an attempt at intimidation of the listed non-voters and an invitation to cast fraudulent ballots in their names.
Who votes is public record!
Why do so many people fail to vote? We've been talking about this problem for years, but it only seems to get worse. This year, we're taking a new approach. We're sending this mailing to you and your neighbors to publicize who does and does not vote.
We need to all pull together. This chart shows the names of some of your neighbors, showing which have voted in the past.
After the June 5th election, public records will tell everyone who voted and who didn't.
Do your civic duty -- vote.
I can only hope that, by spreading the word, I can do my part to give these presumptuous cowards exactly what they claim to wish for, greater turnout. Presumably, however, most of the new votes -- which, thankfully, aren't a matter of public record -- would go to Walker, who is facing a recall election.
