Sure, Kathy Nickolaus might be in charge of the state GOP data base as well.

As someone who does a crap ton of work with generating these kind of letters out of a database, the number of pieces don't matter, either the data being pulled from the database is correct, or it isn't. I would assume anything that went out would be proof read, but if you were generating a state wide mailing, it's conceivable that an error might be missed for some areas, though not seeing an issue with any letter going to Dane county seems pretty dubious.
It would be interesting to know who is in the GOP database, and find out how they got in there. According to the GAB, not all who are getting (and returning) the registration letters are unregistered voters.
It seems the simplest solution would be to bar 3rd party groups from sending out registration forms, or create a set packet that couldn't be modified or "enhanced" for said groups to send out.
