Those pushing audits of the recent presidential election argue that such doublechecks are needed to “restore integrity to our elections.” In fact, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures, a total of 3676 election-related bills were passed by states this year, the highest in history. That included calls for election audits in a number of states, including Wisconsin, to audit the outcome of the elections. In the Badger State, an audit was performed by the nonpartisan Legislative Audit Bureau, and it found that our election was in fact safe and secure. A second taxpayer-funded investigation is still underway. The same has happened everywhere else audits were conducted. A recent audit in Texas found only a handful of differences in the electronic count and the hand count. In Arizona’s Maricopa County, a so-called forensic audit by the group Cyber Ninjas, confirmed that not only did Joe Biden beat Donald Trump there, he did so by 360 more votes than at first count. So, now that the audits have been conducted, and confirmed Joe Biden won, it appears that election integrity didn’t need to be restored. It was there the whole time. It is important that we have faith in our electoral system, and every audit so far has confirmed that we can. Our elections clearly have integrity. It is time to move on.
