WISCONSIN NEWS ROUNDUP: National report says Wisconsin's voting system is still pretty good
We keep hearing that Wisconsin's voting system is politically-tattered and broken -- but a national report says it's still pretty good. According to the Pew Charitable Trusts, the Badger State had the nation's third-best voting system in the 2012 elections, behind only North Dakota and Minnesota. Wisconsin's new ranking is down one place from 2008, when Pew gave the state's election system an 80-percent voter rating. The new figure is 79-percent.
