AFTERNOON NEWS ROUNDUP: Gov. Walker signs multiple election changes into law Wednesday morning
A new Wisconsin law will let partisan election observers stand as close as three-feet from you, when you obtain a ballot or register-to-vote. Governor Scott Walker signed that measure and other Republican election changes into law today. Registered voters must speak their names to a poll worker in order to get a ballot. The Republican Walker said observers could stand 3-to-8 feet away, so they can certify the distribution of ballots and thus assure fair elections.
