Wisconsin Announces Results of Election Audit

The election audit in Wisconsin has been concluded.

It has been announced that it was “largely safe and secure.”

Notice, that it is not quite completely safe and secure, but the language being used is clearly trying to downplay the problems found.

About as Expected

In a national election, it would be tough to find enough votes in as many states as Trump lost to overturn the election.

That has never been my focus concerning election audits.

I have stated many times that even minimal election irregularities can corrupt a local election.

In many of these elections, it can take less than 100 votes to determine an outcome, so these issues have to be addressed.

In all, auditors made 30 recommendations to improve the election process in the state, so I would call that considerable changes that need to be made.

Republican state Sen. Robert Cowles stated, “With 30 recommendations, many of which are urgent and significant, for the [Wisconsin Elections Commission] staff and another 18 items for Legislative consideration, we have work to do.

“However, despite concerns with statewide elections procedures, this audit showed us that the election was largely safe and secure.”

Republican State Rep. Samantha Kerkman said the audit “uncovered a number of instances in which existing laws were ignored by the very agency entrusted with overseeing our state’s elections.

“My Republican legislative colleagues and I remain committed to using the audit’s findings as a blueprint to bring necessary reforms where needed.”

Of the 15,000 ballots that were audited, seven percent of them had irregularities.

They also found 24 instances of double voter registrations.

Not enough to turn the election for Trump, not nearly enough, but that amount of ballots easily could have impacted a local race.
