From the We’re Watching Wisconsin Elections Campaign:
YOU THINK YOU SEE VOTE FRAUD—NOW WHAT?
BECOME PART OF “ELECTION WATCH”
For years neighborhoods have successfully protected themselves from crime through “NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH”, a program that depends on citizens who “watch” and “report”. It is not surprising that criminals avoid neighborhoods that “watch”. “Election Watch” is based on the same idea and you can have the same effect on our elections and protect your vote. The concept is simple: as you vote (either at in-person absentee voting in your clerk’s office or at the polls on Election Day), “watch” the process. Observe. What do you see?
What should you see? You should see an orderly process in an environment with no campaigning (electioneering) going on, and voters freely exercising their constitutional right to cast their ballot. You should see poll workers registering new voters to vote on the day of the election. (
What if you see something that just does not look like it should be happening either inside or outside thepolls? Do what you are urged to do by “Neighborhood Watch”. Report it to the authorities.
At each polling place there is a Chief Election Inspector who is responsible and in charge of all that goes on at that poll location. Find that Chief Inspector and report your concern or ask your question. You should get an immediate answer and either the situation corrected or have your concerns put to rest. If you are not satisfied with the answer or action of the Chief Election Inspector, you need to make either real or mental notes of your concern and the time and location of the occurrence. It is your responsibility as a concerned citizen to find the following phone numbers and report your concerns immediately. Time is of the essence. Vote fraud is a felony and carries with it a fine of up to 3yr/$10,000.
Then call one of the following until you get an answer:
The Municipal Clerk in charge of elections in your community (usually at your city hall).
Your local District Attorney who is the designated official to receive reports of election "irregularities” and refer them to the police for investigation.
Your local police who are on duty on Election Day. Election fraud is a crime—it is a felony. Local police respond to election crimes as they do any crime reported by a citizen.
The Government Accountability Board at: 1-866-VOTE-WIS or go to their website: http://gab.wi.gov/ to report your concern. Click on Complaints.
