A whole new world of election insecurity, apparently.

The Wisconsin Elections Commission has ordered an audit of ballots in one municipality in every county in the state.

The 183 wards selected in the counties for audit are done so randomly with the intent to show all is good with the Wisconsin voting process.

Instructions about the audit on the state’s website says, “Wisconsin has 12 different makes and models of voting equipment in use, and each type will be audited at least five times. At least one ward in each of the 72 counties will be selected, but no municipality will be selected for more than two audits.”

La Crosse’s two wards to be audited: 18 and 26. That audit will be done on Nov. 20 in City Hall.
