An official with the Government Accountability Board says it’s illegal to vote where a person is just temporarily located. So did a Madison woman who claims she voted in Onalaska last November break the law? The Dane County D.A. just got the case from Lacrosse County and will look into it now.
A legislative aide, who worked for a state Assembly candidate near Onalaska, says she made it clear on her Facebook, that her stay in Onalaska last November was temporary, and she should have voted in Madison. In an Onalaska police report, the aide she said was told by a poll worker it would be okay to vote there – and she didn’t mean to do anything wrong.
A Dane County supervisor wrote a blog entry that challenged the aide’s right to vote in Onalaska. A Madison man read it, and then filed a complaint.
Once again Mother Nature has proven she is not a race fan in 2011. This time on a more serious scale. The storm that tore up parts of LaCrosse, Sparta and Tomah also hit Excalibur Speedway.
“A few of the power lines at the speedway were blown over and unfortunately we are not the only one having issues. The soonest we were able to find anyone to come and repair the damage was Friday. That is too close to race time and so we made the decision to push the opening back one more week. We hope everyone enjoys their holiday weekend.” -Greg Oliver, Race Operations Manager.
Officials plan to have everything repaired by the weekend and have everything back up
