Voting Mailer

CREATED Jun. 4, 2012

GREEN BAY, WI - Your neighbors may now know whether you vote after a flyer from The Greater Wisconsin Political Fund arrived in the mailbox.
   The mailing is meant to drive voters to the polls, but it lists full names, addresses and whether that person voted in 2008 and in 2010. It is information some people wish would remain private.
   James Reed says, "I don't like that type of thing. That's kind of an invasion of my privacy, really."
   Albert Patterson says, "It's public information, isn't it? Anyone can get this information. Why would it affect me?"
   Just to be clear, the flyer only shows if you voted, not who you voted for. The information can be bought in bulk for the entire state for $12,500.
