Wisconsin Activists Triumph In Keeping Voter Rolls Clean

Nowhere in the U.S. was election integrity concerning gathering ballots more closely monitored and successfully challenged than in Wisconsin. A state voter integrity team found plentiful examples of phantom ballots and was able to take corrective action.

Votes and ballots are inherently different, despite the apparent similarity. Democrats have successfully devised almost countless ways to flood the streets with ballots, which theoretically must be tied to a specific person — hopefully with a specific address.

There are many ways to rig the system.

One was discovered by a Thomas More Society investigation in conjunction with the Wisconsin Voter Alliance. It found that the state was not tracking almost all those declared ineligible to vote due to cognitive impairment.

However, the recent wave of Democratic initiatives meant that erroneous ballots are by far the easiest way to get around “one person, one vote.”

Enter phantom ballots. These are still addressed to voters who have either moved or are deceased. Or somewhere that no voter could ever live.

It is a simple process to collect ballots from these locations and return them.

But the effort was thwarted by a small group of dedicated and virtually anonymous Wisconsin citizens. They toiled in a small office with very little funding to ensure that a free and fair election was decided by actual voters.

If collecting ballots from these locations was to ensure the election of preferred candidates, there would have to be thousands and perhaps tens of thousands of these phantom addresses.

The team went to work, poring through mountains of voter rolls and data to determine both phantom names and faulty addresses.

With proof gleaned from their research, the volunteers approached county registrars up and down the state about what they had found. If a person is not real, is deceased, or has moved, the registrars are supposed to deal with the situation.

Addresses that were either typos or nonexistent were tallied and presented to authorities who had no choice but to take action. Any one of those addresses could be the destination for ballots to go into the wrong hands.

For those who wish to manipulate elections through phantom ballots to succeed, there must be rolls filled with not only the dead but phony addresses and living arrangements. This in one instance did not happen.

With a GOP resistance plan in place and already proven successful, getting a desired election result without real voters deciding just became much harder, at least in one state. And that is election integrity at its finest.
