MADISON — With Wisconsin’s spring election here, lawmakers and poll watchers say they’ve confirmed multiple incidents of ballot harvesting in Milwaukee and Racine, in defiance of a judge’s ruling.
Conservative activist Ken Dragotta tells Wisconsin Spotlight that he and state Rep. Janel Brandtjen witnessed multiple incidents of individuals bringing in ballots they claimed to be from voters at Milwaukee’s early voting sites.
“We traveled to about 75 percent of the facilities. We also asked chief election inspectors whether or not they were accepting multiple ballots from voters. They all said yes,” said Dragotta, who also serves as a member of the Republican Party of Waukesha board. “We asked, ‘Are you doing anything to make sure you are not ballot harvesting?’ They said it’s not ballot harvesting, that Claire said it’s okay.”
