MADISON, Wis. (WTAQ) - If you voted in both Wisconsin and Minnesota in the 2008 presidential election, don’t be surprised if you get nabbed for fraud. Each state has around 3 million voters, and officials in both states recently agreed to share their data.
Kevin Kennedy, who heads the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board, says it’s been alleged for years that college students who live in one state and go to school in the other can easily vote twice. He says his staff members are poring through the data to see if it really happened.
If it did, Kennedy says those involved will be investigated – and depending on the evidence, they might be referred to prosecutors.
