MADISON, WI – The Wisconsin Election Commission has created a new question-and-answer section on its website to dispel misinformation about November election.

“We understand that some voters still have questions about how the election was conducted and how the winners were determined,” said Meagan Wolfe, administrator of the WEC and Wisconsin’s chief election official. “It’s our job to answer those questions with facts and to explain what procedures Wisconsin’s election officials use to follow state election laws.”

The WEC’s approach to dealing with misinformation is to discuss mechanics of the election with the media and voters. “We don’t just say trust us. We want to show everyone how elections really work so they can decide for themselves,” Wolfe said. “Election laws are incredibly complicated, and most people are not aware of the mechanics of elections.”
