MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Acting on a new state law, the state Elections Board is asking local district attorneys to investigate 82 cases in which convicted felons may have voted in the November election.
The new law required the board's staff to check the statewide voter list from that election against the names of people who were on supervision as part of a felony sentence.
Felons are barred from voting until they complete their sentences, including probation or parole.
The Elections Board cautioned that it must be confirmed that the voters identified are the same as the felons.
