Republican politicians and activists have long expressed concerns about absentee voting after showing that the current process for requesting and verifying absentee ballots is ripe for abuse and fraud.

One election official in Milwaukee was fired and may face criminal charges for showing how easy it is to obtain absentee ballots fraudulently.

Kimberly Zapata, the deputy director of the Milwaukee Election Commission, requested absentee ballots that members of the military use to vote and sent them to Republican Elections Committee chairwoman Janel Brandtjen.

Zapata requested the ballots using the names of servicemembers who do not exist.

The Elections Commission Director believes that Zapata was trying to show that absentee ballots can be requested without photo identification or even cross-referencing the person with a voter registration database.
