Do you have confidence in how elections are run? A group called Keep Our Republic has a meeting planned in La Crosse on Wednesday night, to help assure voters that Wisconsin elections are conducted fairly, and aimed at avoiding fraud.
Former four-term Wisconsin Republican Gov. Tommy Thompson says he has faith in the state’s election system.
“We hire people that are honest, their integrity is great, and people that are county clerks, run for public office themselves,” Thompson said Monday on WIZM’s La Crosse Talk. “They want their elections to be fair and honest.”
La Crosse Talk PM airs weekdays at 5:06 p.m. Listen on the WIZM app, online here, or on 92.3 FM / 1410 AM / 106.7 FM (north of Onalaska). Find all the podcasts here or subscribe to La Crosse Talk PM wherever you get your podcasts.
Thompson said both in-person voting and balloting by mail are done fairly in Wisconsin with some mistakes unable to be avoided. He supports the Keep Our Republic project.
“I feel very comfortable and confident that our elections are fair and honest, and I believe that based upon the Wisconsin tradition, that will continue to be so,” Thompson said.
