Are brightly painted cows required by law to be displayed at Wisconsin polling places?
No, that's a mocking canard, probably started by our neighbors to the south, who have always been envious of our status as America's Dairyland. Wisconsin has no such requirement. It's strictly voluntary. (This is one of the painted cow sculptures from Cow Parade 2006.) Dudgeon School, Madison, Wisconsin on the night of the 2008 Wisconsin primary election.
