“Wisconsin Elections Commission: 19 Reported Cases Of Possible Voter Fraud Over Nearly 2 Years”

WPR:

The violations were:

  • Seven reports of an undeliverable Election Day registration confirmation postcard.
  • Four reports of an individual attempting to vote twice in the same election by trying to cast a ballot in two different municipalities.
  • Three reports of an individual providing an incorrect address on their voter registration. 
  • Two reports of an individual attempting to vote twice in the same election, once by in-person early voting or voting by mail and once at the polls on election day. 
  • One report of a felon who attempted to register to vote.
  • One report of an individual providing unspecified incorrect information on their voter registration. 
  • One report of an individual attempting to vote twice in the same election, once by in-person early voting and once by mail

During the Wednesday commission meeting, chair Ann Jacobs, who was appointed by a Democrat, said it’s very important for people to be confident about election security. She pointed out the 19 reports of fraud, irregularity or violation represent a very small percentage of the ballots cast over the past several elections. For example, about 2.7 million people voted in the 2018 general election, according to the commission, and there were only four reports from clerks of fraud, irregularity or violation for that election.
