Documents from a recent Romney poll watcher training obtained by ThinkProgress contain several misleading or untrue claims about the rights of Wisconsin voters. A source passed along the following packet of documents, which was distributed to volunteers at a Romney campaign training in Racine on October 25th. In total, six such trainings were held across the state in the past two weeks.

One blatant falsehood occurs on page 16 of the training packet, which informed poll watchers that any identification cards from a voter “must include a photo”, despite the fact that Wisconsin’s voter ID law has been blocked by multiple state judges for this election.

Presidential Election 2012: Nasty Campaign Tactics Surface Ahead Of Decision Day

MIAMI — With a week to go until Election Day, the nasty campaign tactics are coming out.

People in Florida, Virginia and Indiana have gotten calls falsely telling them they can vote early by phone and don't need to go to a polling place. Indiana's secretary of state launched an investigation. Virginia officials issued a warning to voters and asked them to report any such calls they receive.

In good news, they've tracked down the couple that paid for those "felony" billboards. Cant look it up right now, but NPR did a story this morning.

To Report Voter Fraud or Intimidation in your state call:

Election Protection voter complaint hotline: 1-866-OUR-VOTE

From the same article:

Voting rights advocates also say there have been scattered complaints of bosses ordering employees to support a particular presidential candidate or face job repercussions. And in the past, students and other groups have been the targets of robocalls falsely saying they can vote on the day after Election Day if the lines are too long.

The facts aren't all in yet, but this "correction" of over 1000 votes seems fishy.

Why hold elections on a week day?
