A lawsuit by Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen is part of a "national Republican tactic" to challenge what's expected to be a close election for president in Wisconsin.
The charge comes from state Senate President Fred Risser (D-Madison), who says that if Republicans are successful in having a lot of provisional ballots cast, they can choose to challenge the results if the presidential vote is close. Risser says it's an effort to change results after the election is done.
Van Hollen says he's just trying to enforce the national Help American Vote Act, and ensure that only eligible ballots are cast on November 4th. He wants the state to cross-check voter names with driver license records.
