Legislative hearing on election complaints today

MADISON — As lawsuits fly over voting irregularities and claims of fraud in the presidential election, the Joint Committee on Campaigns and Elections will hold a public hearing today.

The hearing is set for 10 a.m. in Room 412 East of the Wisconsin State Capitol. 

“With numerous concerns brought forward, we will proceed with the election investigation,” Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) said in a press release. “We must ensure that every legal vote was counted and begin working to eliminate questionable practices that undermine the integrity of the vote.”

The committee has received thousands of complaints regarding the election and have spent the past month reviewing each claim, according to the press release. Committee chairman, Rep. Ron Tusler (R-Harrison), will provide a report of his findings to the committee members and invite speakers to testify. 

“We owe it to the voters of Wisconsin that all claims of voter fraud are investigated,” said Rep. Steineke (R-Kaukauna), Assembly majority leader. “It’s vital that we can have confidence in our state’s electoral process.”

The announcement comes as the Trump campaign alleges sweeping election misconduct in state and federal court challenging Wisconsin’s presidential elections results. Democrat Joe Biden narrowly won the Wisconsin vote, by some 20,600 voters, or less than 1 percent, according to the unofficial results. President Trump’s attorneys claim widespread election law violations occurred, particularly in liberal bastions Dane and Milwaukee counties. The campaign is asking courts to toss out tens of thousands of votes after local poll workers filled in missing ballot certificate information and county clerks stretched the meaning of Wisconsin’s “indefinite Confinement” law.  

“The goal of the ongoing investigation is transparency. Wisconsin voters deserve fair and accurately counted elections. I look forward to hearing from eyewitnesses, experts and election officials about alleged issues in the November 3rd election,” Tusler said. 

Public access to the hearing room will be very limited, an overflow room or the rotunda will be available to observe the hearing or members of the public may watch WisconsinEye coverage available at https://wiseye.org/live/. The chairs reserve the right to enact a time limit on speakers.
