The Wisconsin Elections Commission is cracking down on misinformation circulating online that alleges 'unfounded rumors' about the integrity of the state's election results.

Wisconsin’s top election official, Meagan Wolfe, used a lengthy message Tuesday to combat the false information, and convey to Wisconsin residents that the 2020 election was "conducted according to law and in the open."

"While the results are still unofficial and are currently being triple checked as part of the canvass and certification process, we have not seen any credible information to cast any doubt on those unofficial results," Wolfe explained.

Attached below is the WEC's list on the 'top facts' about the election in Wisconsin. It is an addition to last week's news release from the commission regarding unfounded rumors - such as the state having more votes than registrations (which TMJ4 News debunked here) and ballots being added to unofficial totals (also found to not be true).
