Wisconsin: “Trump Carried Counties Where Many Voters Avoided ID Rules”

Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:

More Wisconsin voters were allowed to vote absentee without showing photo identification in counties Donald Trump won than in counties that backed Joe Biden, a new analysis shows…

A Milwaukee Journal Sentinel review shows 123,357 voters in the 58 counties Trump carried claimed to be indefinitely confined on the basis of age, physical illness or disability which allowed them to bypass the photo identification requirement.

In the 14 counties Biden won en route to a 21,000-vote victory, 92,356 voters listed themselves as indefinitely confined.

The finding comes as Trump and other Republicans argue the dramatic increase in indefinitely confined voters this year, including by two Democratic lawmakers who have appeared at public events, is a sign the system is being abused.
