Did any of the WI people have the phone calls and door to door people come and tell you that you didn’t have to vote today?We didn’t (we don’t have a home phone), but one of my family members did. It pretty much said if you signed the recall petition that you didn’t have to vote, that counted as your vote.

I just don’t understand when we came to discourage people from having a voice, even if it is different then ours? Why would anybody think that is ok?

ETA:I found this article about it :http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-57447512-503544/in-wisconsin-reports-of-voter-suppression-efforts/

@ieatunicorns:  THAT is fucked up.  (And illegal, I would think.)

@ieatunicorns:  Hmm I didn’t hear that, but then again I don’t have a home phone, and I live in an apartment building and am never home to answer the door, anyways.

I don’t understand the viciousness of this all, either.  I can’t wait until it’s over with!!!

@ieatunicorns:  I heard about that on the radio this morning. I hope no one is swayed to not vote because of one of those calls!!!

I would hope no one is naive enough to fall for that!  I hadn’t seen anyone say anything about it so far, but I’ve been avoiding reading my fb homepage.

@mightywombat:  It is illegal, but I guess they said they haven’t been able to identify the source of the robocalls or mailings yet.

@hisgoosiegirl:  I would hope not as well, but if you are older and don’t go onthe internet and someone came to your door and told you that, I could see someone believing it. Sad it even had to go there.

Wow, I had no idea we had so many Wisconsin bees. All the exit polls seem to say this one is gonna be close. They’re going to be counting votes for a while.
