There are new questions about the 2020 election after the latest numbers from the 2022 election.
Rep. Janel Brandtjen, R-Menomonee Falls, on Tuesday said this year’s military voting numbers show something happened between the two elections.
“We have learned that the number of active military members voting in the 2022 election dropped by over 83% since the 2020 election!” Brandtjen said in a statement.
Brandtjen is at the center of the story about military ballots in Wisconsin.
She received three fake military ballots ahead of Election Day. Those ballots, it turned out, came from a Milwaukee election manager.
“When Milwaukee deputy election clerk Kim Zapata created three military members out of thin air and sent requests for legitimate ballots to my home address, the vulnerability of the military ballot process was exposed,” Brandtken added.
Military voters in Wisconsin don’t have to actually register, and never have to show voter ID in order to get an absentee ballot in the state.
