Although he has signaled opposition to same-day voter registration, Gov. Scott Walker accompanied his college-age son to a Wauwatosa polling place to register and vote on Aug. 14 - the day of the GOP Senate primary.

Matt D. Walker, a freshman at Marquette University, registered to vote at Jefferson School in Wauwatosa, just blocks from the Walker home, according to election records.

A witness who was at the polling place told the Journal Sentinel that the governor accompanied his son.

"parroting another right-wing lie"

Sad to say but it is an endless stream of this crap from the right.

I'm surprised that we haven't seen the annual "The Lefts WAR ON CHRISTMAS" headline yet this year.

>>Hey AZmike - do yo also like it when the progs use every thing they can think of to prevent military folks from voting or counting the votes? Hey maybe cause they tend to vote conservative???<<

Hey, flyboy, do you have proof of this actually happening? You know - laws that the Democrats have passed or tried to pass, anything like that? Not unfounded accusations, but actual proof. Or are you just parroting another right-wing lie?

"WTF is wrong with allowing people to VOTE!"

What indeed. If nothing else, one might think such blatant behavior would help rally those eligible to vote to make a point to cast their ballots against the elected officials who pull or support such actions.

If we don't already have it, maybe we should allow people to start registering at border checkpoints along our southern border. That would speed things up.

As far as where college students vote. They should vote where there legal residence is. If they are temporairly living away from that legal residence there are things like absentee ballot that could be used you know.

Maybe they want to be able to vote in more than one place --- hummmmm no one tries that do they?

What irritates me is, when governors push things like reduced early voting, elimination of same day registration, requiring collage students to go home to vote rather than vote while in school.

No person in their right mind can tell me that things like this aren't a direct attack against those that dont traditionally vote republican.

Voter ID is one thing..... outright preventing people from voting legally is another.

Nothing is wrong at all with people who have the right to vote at that place and time voting.

What some of us are trying to do is prevent those who legally should not be voting in that place and time from voting there.

Really simple concept - one person - one vote -- oh yeah - and they all get counted correctly.

"It appears the hypocrisy may have been missed by cons. So what's new?"

If Scott Walker was the one insisting same-day voting for himself, not Matt, you would have a fantastic point and would indeed be a hypocricy. Maybe you should study up on the definition.

However, this was Matt Walker's vote, not Scott Walker's -- thus you have no point, your hypocricy accusation is in fact a hypocricy of its own. Your point attempts to disenfranchise Matt Walker for political gain, who legally voted. This is defamation against Matt Walker, you shouldn't be proud of this.

The law of the land says Matt could do that, his Dad has no say in it. I disagree with same-day registration too, but until the law is changed, its legal. Scott supported his son voting, not the law he would like to change. Same day registration seems to have PO'd you off when a Republican uses it, so Scott must have a valid point regarding changing it!

nuff sed

Cliff, you didn't think this bunch of cons wouldn't let one of their own slide did you?

Cliffy - what is your beef. The gov followed existing law did he not? But the gov says he wants to change it. So until he gets it changed to be more rational he obeys the existing law.

Does matt Walker have a say in this? Apparently not. What if he insisted to vote there, not at home? His Dad opposes it but what is the law as it applies to his son's rights? Do you care?

The election is over, you won, now start fixing! You already wasted 4 years our time delaying and distracting.

Maybe post a more constructive topic about Obummer not having any sense of urgency right now. He is in "who cares I'm not running again" mode -- more interesrted in his legacy and future library, not the Country's urgent needs.
