It's overwhelming, just how many Republican states, counties and organizations are blatantly breaking the law in an attempt to suppress Democratic voters. In this case, it's being done by "unofficial" groups, but of course the GOP is looking the other way. I wonder if the Justice Department is going to do anything about these attempts to steal the election:

MADISON, Wis. - Wisconsin election officials are warning voters to be cautious about slick mailings giving misleading or incorrect information about voter registration and absentee voting.

The Government Accountability Board said in a release Monday that it and local election officials around the state have been receiving an increasing number of questions and complaints and recent mailings that contain errors that could interfere with voting.

One of the mailings in question from the Republican Party of Wisconsin incorrectly told residents in the heavily Democratic areas of Madison and Dane County to return voter registration applications to the town of Albion, even if they did not live there.

Board director Kevin Kennedy recommends that voters rely on information from their local municipal clerk's office or the Myvote.wi.gov website.
