Wisconsin Voters Alliance v. WI Elections Commission (2020AP001930)
A Wisconsin non-profit and more than two dozen voters filed a lawsuit against the Wisconsin Elections Commission asking the state Supreme Court to block the certification of election results because of alleged irregularities. The lawsuit claims that it found that more than 10,000 Republican ballots weren’t counted; more than 10,000 GOP voters who had their ballots requested and filled in by another person; and around 100,000 illegal ballots that were counted anyway. The suit details a series of alleged illegal actions taken by Wisconsin officials that led to significant numbers of improper votes being counted, such as not enforcing state laws that require voters to present photo identification when requesting an absentee, or mail-in, ballot.
