Former Wisconsin Attorney General encourages voters to trust the election process

Nearly 3.3 million ballots cast in Wisconsin

MADISON, Wis. (WKBT) – Nearly 3.3 million ballots were cast by voters in Wisconsin during the the fall election.

Only a little more than 20,000 votes separate President Donald Trump and challenger Joe Biden.

Trump’s campaign manager said Wednesday they plan to file a for a recount.

In other states, there are lawsuits being filed.

That could raise questions in some voters’ minds about the integrity of our election system.

A former Wisconsin Attorney General and co-chair of Vote Safe Wisconsin is asking everyone to keep their faith in the electoral process and await the official results.

“People can probably, unless there was some significant error that hasn’t occurred in the past that would discovered during the certification process, I think people can generally speaking rely on the results that have been posted thus far,” said former Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen.

Vote Safe Wisconsin has research about the security of voting on their website.
