Why volunteer?

More Myth Busting

From the Wisconsin Examiner, an online news outlet.  Two Wisconsin Congressmen held a town hall meeting to present information on voting.  They made a lot of mistakes.  Here are their statements on voting and the facts.    Wisconsin city and village clerks corrected them.

[Ed. comment - These same Congressmen were sponsors of a bill that would have made life more difficult for people with disabilities.]
