SO WHAT'S EARLY VOTING LIKE IN MADISON, WISCONSIN? The Badger Herald has this:
The effort to get students to vote early is being promoted by the College Democrats, who have chartered a shuttle to run between the Memorial Union and City Hall every weekday until the election. The van, which runs every half hour between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., is being funded by the Democratic National Committee, who pledged the money after being impressed by the field operation in Madison.
My 21-year-old son, Chris stopped by City Hall to vote, and he had this to say:
"No one ever asked for my ID, and in fact, I asked two different people if they wanted to see my ID, and they said no. So, anyone who wanted to could go in and write down somebody else's name if they knew their address, and vote for them."
Wouldn't want to hassle anybody and make them feel all disenfranchised now, would you?
