J.B. has no tolerance for voter fraud and he supports voter ID. Attorney General Van Hollen's commitment to "fighting crime and restoring integrity" includes protecting the security of the ballot box and Wisconsin's elections. Under his direction the Department of Justice has increased efforts to enforce election laws including prosecuting cases of election fraud.
* J.B. took the unprecedented step to help create the Election Fraud Task Force in conjunction with the Milwaukee District Attorney's office. To date, 17 individuals have been charged with election fraud -- including an individual affiliated with ACORN.
* Expanded the bi-partisan Election Fraud Task Force statewide to 11 new counties.
* Brought a civil suit against the Government Accountability Board (GAB) for failing to perform voter registration checks required by the Help America Vote Act. The GAB now follows the law Van Hollen sought to enforce.
* Sent DOJ agents and assistant attorneys general to polling locations across the state to ensure our votes were protected.
