Among tonight’s citations was this 2011 Politico story, which offers the following from Americans for Prosperity about absentee ballot applications they sent out in Wisconsin that year:

“The date on the ballot application was meant solely for the elections held on Aug. 16. Due to a mistake during printing, all applications were sent out with the Aug. 11 date,” said AFP-Wisconsin state Director Matt Seaholm. “Americans for Prosperity-Wisconsin did not intend to print the incorrect absentee deadline or confuse voters in any way.”...Seaholm said AFP-Wisconsin is addressing the mistake by sending out a call “to each and every individual on the mailing list to clarify the date of the elections.”
