GAB to consider request to investigate illegal immigrants voting in Wisconsin

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin’s Government Accountability Board will consider a request Tuesday to check federal records to see if illegal immigrants are voting – but it would not be cheap.

Board staffers say it would cost $1.2 million over the next five years to check 19 federal databases – and a state law would have to be changed to allow the checks.

Republican Senate Elections Committee chair Mary Lazich of New Berlin asked the Board to check databases like those from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Lazich said the report has good information, but she’s not saying whether she’ll ask legislators to make the required law change.

Officials in Colorado and Florida paid for similar searches – and each found fewer than 200 people who should not have been on their states’ voter lists. A half-dozen other states are also considering the idea.
