In two cases brought to WUWM's attention Tuesday, the voters knew the rules regarding same-day registration and the state's Voter ID law, but the poll workers' initial responses were wrong.

A Shorewood voter posted on Facebook today the troubles his son had registering to vote. Though he had a valid ID with his current address, the poll worker asked for additional Proof of Residence as well as his social security number. Later, the precinct captain confirmed he had everything he needed to register to vote.

Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Rebecca Bradley says, via a written statement, she is "embarrassed at the content and tone" of what she wrote 24 years ago while in college.

Today has been an exceptionally windy day in southeastern Wisconsin. At WUWM's studios, we have been lulled by the sound of creaky windows and wind gusts.

Lake Effect's Mitch Teich watched whole magazines fly past his seventh floor window, while one WUWM guest witnessed a lady being knocked over by a particularly strong gust of wind.

Earlier in the day, we watched water dance across the frozen river.

Thousands of people from across Wisconsin marched at the State Capitol in Madison on Thursday, against legislation they say is anti-immigrant.

Many people took the day off work for  the "Day Without Latinos" demonstration. They chanted and carried signs that read "All We Want is Equity" and "Stop the Deportations."
