It’s being described as a hyper-localized community engagement seminar aimed to educate the La Crosse-area community on Wisconsin’s election process.

The group, Keep Our Republic, is putting on the seminar, which will happen at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the La Crosse County Administrative Center in La Crosse.

Former Wisconsin Republican Gov. Tommy Thompson joined WIZM’s La Crosse Talk on Monday to talk about election integrity.

WHAT: Community Engagement and Education on Wisconsin’s Electoral Process
WHEN: 6:30 p.m. Wednesday
WHERE: La Crosse County Administrative Center (map) — Room 0430

Wednesday’s seminar will feature county clerks, village clerks and election officials as presenters. These election experts will provide comprehensive information about the entire electoral process. This includes educating on the processes of pre-election, election day and post-election.

Members of the La Crosse-area community are encouraged to join. Those who attend the seminar will deepen their understanding of the electoral process and share vital election information with their fellow community members.

That participation will further strengthen Keep Our Republic’s collective efforts in promoting a clear understanding of the entire electoral process and foster election transparency within the community and beyond.

This is the third in a series of events that Keep Our Republic will host across Wisconsin.

These community engagement seminars are designed to foster trust, respect and confidence in Wisconsin’s election administration. They will also provide an opportunity for Wisconsin residents to gain valuable insights into the post-Election Day process, including the crucial aspects of canvassing and certification of votes.

    Once again – there is no election integrity as long as things like ballot harvesting, no voter ID required, endless voting, motor voter registration, drop boxes, mailed out ballots, mailed requests for ballots, bussed in voting, midnight counting after observers go home, no ballot investigation, colleges that provide extra credit for voting, etc…. Blah blah blah

    Democrat politicians in spite of all common sense make decision after decision to make the voting process more vulnerable, it isn’t a far leap to ask why?
