TV Report: Woman Declares Idaho Residency But Votes in Wisconsin Elections

by

Samantha Vos, who said that she was a resident of Canyon County in court papers filed April 19 separating from her husband, cast a vote in Wisconsin's April presidential primary election, according to a report by Madison, Wisc., television station WKOW. Vos is the wife of Wisconsin Republican Rep. Robin Voss, co-chair of his state's joint finance committee.

WKOW reports that Wisconsin law requires 28 days of continuous residency prior to voting.

Vos' Democratic opponent in the upcoming election told WKOW that Samantha Vos' vote while a resident of Idaho was "unfortuante" and said it indicated she had improperly voted.

WKOW reports that Samanta Vos also voted in a June 5 Wisconsin gubernatorial recall election and another primary election earlier this month, as her legal action in Idaho continued.
