Wisconsin Elections Commission outlines next steps to verify Election Day results
Wisconsin’s chief election official, Meagan Wolfe, released the following statement:
“Wisconsin’s counting and reporting of unofficial results has gone according to law. Our municipal and county clerks have worked tirelessly throughout the night to make sure every valid ballot is counted and reported accurately. Those unofficial results are available on the county clerks’ websites.”
This includes randomly selecting 5% of reporting units for voting equipment audits which must occur before results are certified as required by law on December 1.— Wisconsin Elections (@WI_Elections) November 4, 2020
“Today, the Wisconsin Elections Commission staff will be standing ready to assist clerks as they start the process of triple-checking the results. This includes randomly selecting 5% of reporting units for voting equipment audits which must occur before results are certified as required by law on December 1.”
More information on the state’s election certification process can be found on the commission’s website.
