A Republican legislative aide is under investigation for possible vote fraud after she cast her ballot in the November election in Onalaska although she lives in Madison. La Crosse County District Attorney Tim Gruenke said he has forwarded the report from the Onalaska Police Department to Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne to see if criminal charges are warranted...
The woman apparently was back home in Onalaska, working on a campaign, so she voted there instead of at her permanent residence in Madistan.
To my mind, (assuming the facts reported are accurate), she done wrong. Shoulda/Coulda pulled an absentee ballot from Madison--or drove in and back on election day--to vote.
Under state law, "a person who moves to another location for a temporary purpose is not eligible to vote there," said Diane Lowe, the lead elections specialist for the GAB. "At times, it is difficult to ascertain whether a person has an intent to return from whence they came or not."
That raises VERY interesting questions about students living in dormitories, doesn't it?
