The one big problem with the proof in the alleged Cochran vote-buying scheme

If you look closely at the alleged texts from Saleem Baird, Baird asks for something that looks a bit off in a vote-buying scheme: the names and home addresses of the payees. 

Why would a campaign ask for names and addresses of the payees in a vote-buying scheme? My thought is that they wouldn't. Looking at the pictures of the texts provided so far, I am of the opinion that Baird was looking to Fielding to provide workers on Election Day, and needed that info fill out campaign finance reports.

I think that Baird was just trying to verify identity of the paid voters with the addresses.
