Reports: Wisconsin agents saw few Election Day problems


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The 50 agents and prosecutors Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen sent to monitor the presidential election found very few major problems.

  The Wisconsin Department of Justice released more than 280 pages of field reports from Election Day on Thursday.

  The employees were asked to make sure voting signs were posted correctly, to make sure lists of ineligible voters were used and to watch for illegal campaigning.

  They also were asked to report any problems and information about other observers watching the polls.

  Many of the employees found no problems to report or listed only routine ones such as machines getting jammed.

  Democrats accused Van Hollen, a Republican, of trying to intimidate voters by sending the employees. Van Hollen says he was trying to ensure a clean election.
