The Trump campaign aims to throw in four buckets the ballot paper that, according to a copy of the lawsuit distributed by the Trump campaign: 170,000 personal missing ballot papers, 5,500 ballot papers that lacked some witness titles, 28,400 ballot papers from voters claiming it was held by the City of Madison “Democracy in the Park” events were “unlimitedly limited” and 17,300 ballots returned.
Biden’s victory in the state was roughly 20,600 votes.
Trump’s lawsuit said Democratic Wisconsin governor Tony Evers acted too early in verifying the election results Monday afternoon after the state election board searched for nationwide results and found Biden a winner.
Notably, Trump’s lawsuit does not allege widespread electoral fraud and does not provide evidence of it, as the president has repeatedly claimed on Twitter and elsewhere. Instead, the campaign claims that this roughly 221,000 ballot papers were cast in violation of state laws.
“The people of Wisconsin deserve electoral processes with a uniform, simple, and simple implementation of the law,” said Jim Troupis, a Trump campaign adviser. The case makes vague indications of a “greater likelihood” of fraudulent with coupons.
The Trump campaign alleges that counties have not complied with state laws with the largest bucket of ballot paper that the Trump campaign seeks to toss up personally missing ballots by not submitting a separate written request from voters.
But the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel notes that the practice of allowing voters to sign a form on a ballot envelope — both as a request to vote and as proof that they fill out the ballot — is “more than a decade. “
The Trump campaign is also trying to get out of the ballot papers that, after March 25, the day the first stay-at-home order came into force in Wisconsin, have recently claimed to be “closed indefinitely,” allowing for voters to submit a missing ballot paper without a copy of a photo ID. The Trump campaign claims that some voters do not meet the criteria.
When Trump bore the state tight in 2016, his campaign did not challenge practices such as personal absentee voting and filling in missing witness information for clerks.
Troupis, a former Dane County judge, is actually seeking to throw his own ballot. Both he and his wife voted in absentia, the Sentinel wrote earlier.
