Is Questionable National Org with Democratic Ties Trying to Suppress Conservative Vote in Wisconsin?
MacIver News Service – 2/20/2012

Over the weekend, a strange pamphlet began appearing in mailboxes across Wisconsin. It looks like a voter registration form and return label read, Government Accountability Board, but the return address included the incorrect post office box number.

The mailings also included requests for information not required to register to vote in Wisconsin, and at least one solicitation tried to register a six year old girl to vote.
The mailer purported came from an organization called “The Voter Participation Center.”
There is a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit by that name, and the organization has been involved in voter registration drives in other states, often prompting complaints. The Voter Participation Center’s stated mission is to increase voting among unmarried women, 18-29 year olds, and “people of color.” The organization used to be called “Women’s Voices. Women Vote” or WVWV, which was founded in 2005.

The packet states that it is an official application form, but it asks an unusual question that made recipients suspicious.  It requests the voters’ party affiliation, even though Wisconsin is an open primary state and voters are never asked this question by election workers.
Since 2006, the Voter Participation Center and its predecessor have been involved in a series of voter-registration mixups in Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, North Carolina and Virginia.

Kevin Kennedy (with the Government Accountability Board) said that while it is legal for groups and political parties to produce and distribute voter registration forms, residents who wish to register to vote need not rely on them. “If you need or want to register to vote, contact your municipal clerk directly and request an application,” Kennedy said. “You can also download an official Wisconsin voter registration form from the G.A.B. website, fill it out and mail it directly to the clerk.”

  1. This VPC is a fake organization to confuse people and get more fake voters. Many organizations don't want people present and ID to vote, because each person will need to get so many IDs for each name they register to vote to commit fraud. My husband and I received the forms, his with an initial he doesn't have, mine with my nick name, and those mistakes were the red flag for me that this organization is not right. A serious organization don't mail this kind of crap.

  2. Someone need to verify who is behind this VPC organization. Where they get the money to mail so many pamphlets. I am very suspicious.

  3. I received a voter registration form from this group today. It was addressed to my ex-wife, at my address. Keep in mind that we have been divorced 17 years , she remarried 14 years ago and took her husbands last name, she never lived at my address and, by the way, died 4 yrs ago. Sounds like voter fraud to me. If I were to fill it out and mail it in, I would love to be a fly on the wall and watch what happens in the office it is going to!!!

  4. My wife received the same form here in Virginia on Friday. Be very cautious. The return envelope said 'State Board of Elections, 1100 Bank St., Richmond, VA'...which was all correct, but the zip code was not SBE's, but was to a private PO Box. Also, after further scrutiny it did identify this official looking form as coming from Voter Participation Center. I actually drove to the address listed and it's a UPS store.

    I blogged about it here...
