MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - State Attorney General JB Van Hollen says he’s very concerned about voter fraud in the six upcoming recall elections. Voters will not have to show photo ID’s at either the May eighth primaries or the June fifth general elections. That’s because a judge says he will not rule until after those elections in a lawsuit that seeks to permanently strike down the ID requirement. A preliminary injunction is holding up the law until that ruling. Meanwhile, Van Hollen has asked an appeals court to overturn another rejection of the ID law in a different lawsuit. Van Hollen said today that voter fraud is always a risk – and he says there’s no reason to believe it would be any less of a concern in the recall voting. Voter fraud is a rarity in Wisocnsin, with only a handful of cases every year.
