MADISON, Wis. – Wisconsin Republicans have filed an emergency petition in the state Supreme Court to prevent the verification of election results.

The Wisconsin Voters Alliance filed a lawsuit against the Wisconsin Electoral Commission on Tuesday. In the state, election results do not yet need to be verified as recounting in Dane and Milwaukee counties is still ongoing.

The lawsuit alleges that more than 96,000 votes were counted in the Nov. 3 election, alleging that absentee voters evade the Wisconsin Voters Act and list the reasons for voting “limited indefinitely”.

President-elect Joe Biden won more than 20,000 votes in Wisconsin.

The group also claimed that Facebook helped people register illegally to vote through the social media platform.

The Conservative group tried to block more than $ 6 million in election support money for five Wisconsin cities, but a federal judge rejected the request last month.

The WEC must certify the state election results by 1 December.
