- We can’t say yet if the back-dating claims are true, but we know they didn’t affect the Wisconsin vote totals.
- Absentee ballots had to be received by the time polls closed on Election Day to be counted. The date doesn’t matter if the ballots weren’t submitted by then
- All Wisconsin election results were reported by 4 a.m. Nov. 4, before the alleged backdating referenced by this purported whistleblower.
- A U.S. Postal Service contractor working in Wisconsin during the election claims USPS workers told him about 100,000 “missing” ballots and a move to backdate ballots.
The claims from this purported whistleblower are being trumpeted by an array of conservative news outlets and personalities — including President Donald Trump — amid the ongoing effort to discredit and overturn election results in Wisconsin. Claims of widespread voter fraud across the U.S. have been presented without evidence and led to a string of defeats in court.
