Roughly 2,700 more voters in Madison turned out to cast ballots in person than in the city of Milwaukee, with current totals from both cities eclipsing turnout figures from the April 2019 election.
The Madison municipal clerk’s office tweeted turnout stood at 87,552, just over 50 percent of registered voters.
That includes 65,997 voters who returned absentee ballots, good for a return rate of 75 percent, according to the tweet.
Those figures indicate in-person turnout stood at 21,555.
In April 2019, the clerk’s office said 79,453 ballots were cast in Madison.
Not good for Kelly.
Excellent!!! The citizenry got out and exercised their right to vote despite the attempt to suppress the turnout.
Who was suppressing turnout besides Barret by eliminating polling locations?
Why aren’t you screaming about that?
Because Wisconsin is a national embarrassment with the decision to not push the election back. Wisconsin stands alone when it comes to sound judgment.
Awful. Just awful.
Does this mean we need to stop the “Barrett just wanted to re-elect himself” talking point?
>Because Wisconsin is a national embarrassment with the decision to not push the election back
Actually, it’s an unhinged left wing talking point today… a badge of honor, not an embarrassment.
Patsy sez: Wisconsin stands alone when it comes to sound judgment.
If by “Wisconsin” you mean the Wisconsin Supreme Court and state legislature, you would be correct. Helped, of course, by SCOTUS.
If by “Wisconsin” you mean Phony nEvers and his Stasi, quite the opposite. 19 hours before voting was to begin nEvers, acting like some South American tin-horn dictator, tried to overthrow constitutional and legislative law by fiat and cancel the election.
Thankfully, both Supreme Courts threw the blatant attempt back in the face of the little twerp and correctly ruled his power grabs illegal and unconstitutional.
The citizens won, and voted.
“The citizens won, and voted.”
They certainly did. And I’m proud of them.
I just had a discussion else where with a liberal mouth breather. He blames the GOP for his household getting only one absentee ballot when three members had made the request at the same time – three weeks before the election.
I countered with the fact that his local Clerk’s office is responsible for mailing absentee ballots, and the proximate cause lies there…
He responded with “The clerks were running out of ballot envelopes and we asked the GOP for help and the gaveled in and gaveled out and continued their 10 month paid vacation”.
I responded back with the link to the WEC’s website having FAQs showing that a security envelope is not required and Clerk’s could use whatever envelope they wanted for mailing the ballot and for the return envelope.
He went back to 66% failure rate and it’s the GOP fault.
I asked if he was trying to tell me that the “GOP” controls the USPS?
He said not directly, but they have squeezed the USPS to bankruptcy and so they are the direct cause.
I said “Pass” and walked away from that nut job. Just like our dumb liberal hicks here, anyone can blame anything if they spin around fast enough.
Jason, I predict that a bug will be found in the state’s MyVote web. There’s been many (anecdotal) reports like that: several people at one address made a request, only one person gets a ballot.
Jason, I was talking with a conservative who firmly believed that the WisGOP wanted to move the election and offered to Evers to change the date. Does anyone here have any idea what he was talking about, and can you point me to an article about it?
Mouth breather… nut job… golly, why can’t anyone have a civil conversation, it’s such a mystery.
I blame Evers, Vos, and Fitzgerald for not moving the election. All are morons.
So it begins: Democrat Party promotes vote fraud.
Or should I say, “continues”?
MjM, sounds like they want to figure out how many were received too late.
Dan O’Donald? Really?
DMOTP Jiffy makes sheet up: sounds like they want to figure out how many were received too late.
And just how would they determine that?
Next will be a breaking Rush Limbaugh story.
Patsy can’t see the forest: Dan O’Donald?
No. The Democrat Party.
Mjm< it’s not great data, but if someone returns a ballot too late and claims they received it too late, they can examine when their request was received and examine when it was sent out.
Whether their claim is true is another story, of course, but it’s better than nothing.
DMOTP Jiffy babbles like Biden: it’s not great data…. but it’s better than nothing.
To be used in “lawsuits that make them valid“.
You haven’t answered the question.
Show me all the log books that have recordings of request received/ballot sent dates/times.
MjM, you want me to speculate on your speculation that this is vote fraud?
If some clerk wants to figure out when went wrong, why should they try?
>Mouth breather… nut job… golly, why can’t anyone have a civil conversation, it’s such a mystery.
You missed this part, and it was really targeted at you and Leroy… :(
>Just like our dumb liberal hicks here,
DMOTP Jiffy keeps proving it: you want me to speculate on your speculation that this is vote fraud?
You may speculate or continue to flail inane questions about to your leftist heart’s content.
I am not speculating, dumbazz. You follow the Democrat Party’s command and fill out a ballot now and attempt to submit it as legit, you are committing vote fraud.
End of story.
Just as an aside, if your Democrat fraudsters only wanted “figure out when went wrong” there would be no need to follow your party’s command to “fill them out“.
That County Dem tweet claims “there may be lawsuits that make them valid.” Your link even includes the council member’s tweet that suggests you can send them in anyways, and doesn’t even suggest they’d be valid and doesn’t say anything about lawsuits.
What flimsy tweets have you all turgid about this issue and what makes you turn it into “vote fraud”? People say sheet all the time.
The Mayor of Green Bay, who opened only THREE locations. Another foaming-at-the-mouth Democrat, by the way.
DMOTP Jiffy admits he: say sheet all the time.
Got dat right, brudda. You da King of dat.
Such as labeling a Democrat Party call for outright vote fraud “flimsy”
Certainly have earned you moniker today, DMOTP.
And when a county GOP tweet account says something unfounded or stupid or wrong, the national party isn’t responsible, right?
Oh noes, now the MJS is doing it, too!
Ron Johnson is calling for an investigation.
Investigation into ballots not going out.
Awful. Just awful.
So the vote was higher than 2019, but suppression is the word of the day? I would have thought that with 75% of the Madison vote being absentee, fraud would be far more commonly obsessed over. Absentee balloting is so easy to commit fraud with…
