As I See It

More unsubstantiated claims about election



Election integrity. Those words have never been more important. As we pointed out last week, more people than ever participated in our democracy. Our elections officials, poll workers, clerks and voters worked together to make it a smooth process despite the challenges. But not everyone is confident that the outcome is on the up and up. We of course have been hearing unsubstantiated claims in our nation’s capitol about voter fraud of all sorts. Now, in Wisconsin, Assembly Speaker Robin Vos is calling for an investigation into last week’s election. He is urging the Committee on Campaigns and Elections to meet to investigate how the election was administered. He points out “Wisconsin citizens deserve to know their vote counted.” He is right about that. That is why we need to let our clerks do their jobs. The canvass of the vote still needs to be complete, and the votes need to be officially certified. That is how our process works, and we need to let it work. Speaker Vos is simply manufacturing controversy. Let’s let our clerks finish the job they have worked so hard to complete before we try to claim they somehow did something wrong.
