Mailing may target 1 million unregistered Wisconsin voters

Posted:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - More than a million unregistered voters in Wisconsin may be getting a postcard in the mail soon telling them what to do so they can cast a ballot in the upcoming presidential election.
The state's Elections Commission is working on the mailing that is expected to be sent in about a month. It comes as part of the requirement of Wisconsin joining an inter-state consortium dedicated to assisting with voter registration.
A state law passed earlier this year requires Wisconsin to join the Electronic Registration Information Center. The Elections Commission was to approve its plan for mailing the postcards at a Tuesday meeting.
The commission expects between 1 million and 1.5 million postcards to be mailed to potential voters who have driver's licenses or state ID cards but aren't registered.
