Wisconsin has begun its early voting process by running shuttle vans to bring voters to the polls, courtesy of the group “Wisconsin Jobs Now.” In a video by Media Trackers, vans are seen pulling up in front of the polling station, parking, and unloading voters in a “No Parking Zone” blocked off with traffic cones. As the vans arrived, marked with a Jobs Now door-sign, an activist moved the cones aside so they could park.
Media Trackers went to City Hall to inquire if only Jobs Now’s vans could park in front of the building, or if anyone could park there to run in and vote. A city employee is heard on the video saying,
“Any van can go in there, you know, just as long as it’s in and out.”
A Media Tracker film crew and volunteers decided to test that claim and went out the next day with signs that read, “Voter Parking”, and, “Honk to Move Cones.” When a car rolled up and sounded its horn, a volunteer would move the orange cones to open a parking space. Eventually, a female election official came out to the street to tell the volunteers not to move the cones because those spaces were reserved.
“These parking spaces are for us, the election commission, for these vans. You cannot move these cones. These is for the [Jobs Now] vans.”
