MADISON, Wisconsin, November 16, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — According to a Wisconsin radio host, among other violations of the law and improprieties, the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) — the bipartisan agency responsible for administering the state’s elections — clearly violated the law by instructing clerks to fix incomplete mail-in ballots prior to the recent presidential election.
While the U.S. Constitution provides state legislatures the sole authority to craft and change election laws, a report by local radio host Dan O’Donnell said the WEC “absolutely violated state law when it instructed clerks to fill in witness addresses on ballot envelopes ahead of the presidential election.”
PETITION UPDATE (1/15/2021) -
The events of the past month, and especially the past 10 days, have shaken the faith Americans have in their elected and appoint officials.
We continue to call for investigations to be made into allegations of election fraud. Texas is in the process of prosecuting one political operative for illegal ballot harvesting, and multiple state legislatures have called for investigations, too.
However, the judiciary has severely let down the American electorate.
As we have said all along, the integrity of the election is much bigger than President Trump. Election integrity is at the heart of republican democracy, and if we don't have it, we no longer have a functioning republic.
Therefore, we continue to seek the truth for the election outcome. Perhaps that will only be known in the future when state or federal commissions are established to investigate the instances of election fraud which were witnessed and sworn to, by thousands of Americans of all political persuasions.
In the meantime, you may still sign this petition. Thank you!
PETITION UPDATE (12/10/20) -
On Wednesday, President Trump tweeted: "We will be INTERVENING in the Texas (plus many other states) case. This is the big one. Our Country needs a victory!"
He is referring to the lawsuit which the state of Texas has filed against Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Georgia in the Supreme Court over changes those states made to their election rules, claiming they violated the U.S. Constitution in the process.
Here is the central part of the argument: if Texas were to allow possible voter fraud to go unchecked in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Georgia, it would be akin to committing fraud upon the people of Texas, who cast their ballots within the framework of the law.
Indeed, this would apply equally to all citizens who voted within the framework of the law across the United States!
President Trump also tweeted that this case is, "very strong...ALL CRITERIA MET."
Please continue to SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition, now.
PETITION UPDATE (12/7/20) - Since this petition was launched, President Trump's legal team, as well as other concerned citizens, have discovered what appears to be irrefutable evidence of voter fraud in several of the key battleground states, and have initiated legal challenges in six states.
While the situation continues to evolve, this remains a hugely important petition which we encourage you to SIGN and SHARE.
Below, please WATCH and READ about the mounting evidence of voter fraud and how the mainstream media seem determined to ignore even the most egregious instances of vote tampering. Then, please SIGN and SHARE this petition.
'Trump: ‘Our election system is now under assault and siege’ and as president I must defend it'
'Tens of thousands 2020 election votes illegally scanned in Detroit, says Dominion IT contractor'
'Trump campaign files lawsuit demanding ‘a new statewide election for president’ in Georgia'
'Experts flag over 500k ballots in PA with new evidence of major 2020 election voter fraud'
''Smoking gun'? Pennsylvania vote fraud hearing gets gasps from audience'
'FBI and Justice Department have dragged their feet investigating 2020 vote fraud'
''CNN top brass in leaked tape: We won't give Trump 'too much of a platform on his not conceding'
'Twitter censored Trump 63 times over Thanksgiving holiday, Biden untouched'
LifeSite supports President Trump with this petition because we believe he is trying to defend the Constitution, ensuring that electoral fraud does not taint the result of the 2020 general election.
But, since starting this petition, we have launched a separate petition related to the disputed election outcome, calling on the Department of Justice to 'do their job' and engage in meaningful investigations of the mounting evidence of voter fraud.
We believe that conducting forensic audits of ballots and voting machines, as well as issuing subpoenas to collect more evidence, would be a good start.
Thankfully, some of the state started to demand investigations independent of federal agencies. But we still believe that the DoJ needs to use its enormous fact-finding resources to help resolve allegations of election fraud.
Thank you for continuing to SIGN and SHARE all our election-related petitions.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which calls on all Americans to Stand With President Trump as he uses every legitimate means to find out if voter fraud played any role in the election outcome.
Amid allegations of voter fraud, and at a time when the situation with COVID has been used by many of the states to facilitate the use of mail-in ballots on a massive scale, we need to be very careful in dismissing the possibility of voter fraud.
The fact is, the possibility of wide-spread fraud with mail-in ballots is significant.
But, this is not about Donald Trump or Joe Biden! This about whether or not the sanctity of the ballot box has been tampered with!
Please Stand With President Trump as he attempts to defend the integrity of this election, as well as well as the right to vote itself!
Indeed, this is so important, not so much because one election hangs in the balance, but because our democracy, itself, hangs in the balance.
Americans not only have a right to know, but should demand that every legitimate means be used to discover the truth about these elections!
Please SIGN this petition and Stand With President Trump to ensure that these elections were conducted freely and fairly!
While most all Americans believe in playing by the rules, we also know that some very devious, politically-motivated operatives have been trying to harm the Trump administration from before he even took the oath of office.
This fact should lead us to question how some allegations of voter fraud can be so easily dismissed by state election authorities.
We demand to know the truth, and, for the sake of our democracy, we demand that President Trump keep fighting to learn the truth.
Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition today!

Quoting the specific statutes in state law, O’Donnell demonstrates that “if a [ballot] certificate is missing the address of a witness, the ballot may not be counted.” However, the laws also specify that “the clerk may return the ballot to the elector,” allowing that person to “correct the defect and return the ballot.”
Therefore, O’Donnell affirmed, “[t]he elector — not a clerk, not a poll worker, or anyone else — is the only one authorized under Wisconsin law to correct any defect in the ballot, certificate, or ballot envelope. The WEC blatantly ignored this when it told clerks on October 19th that they should simply fill out the address themselves.”
He quotes the WEC directive as stating, “Please note that the clerk should attempt to resolve any missing witness address information prior to Election Day if possible, and this can be done through reliable information (personal knowledge, voter registration information, through a phone call with the voter or witness)[.] … The witness does not need to appear to add a missing address.”
In response to a WEC affirmation that this policy had been in place since 2016, O’Donnell concludes, “In other words, the Wisconsin Elections Commission has instructed clerks to break state law for two presidential elections, two U.S. Senate elections, two State Supreme Court elections, and one gubernatorial election in the past four years.”
Maintaining phantom voters
Other more recent concerns came in October 2019, when the WEC defied Wisconsin state law requiring it to remove from the state’s registered voter lists 234,000 entries of individuals who had moved out of state or to another location in Wisconsin.
Though the law is clear, and since Wisconsin also permits Election Day registration, this statute does not exclude anybody from the right to vote, but simply provides necessary security against vote fraud, especially with absentee or mail-in balloting.
As O’Donnell emphasizes in another piece, “[n]eedless to say, the potential for massive voter fraud is very high with the existence of more than 200,000 different names on Wisconsin’s voter rolls that don’t correspond to an actual voter.”
In response, the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty (WILL) successfully sued the WEC before a county judge, who ordered the WEC to follow the law in this regard and remove the names from the registration lists, but the WEC refused to do so.
Holding the WEC in contempt of court, the judge began to progressively fine the commission until it followed his ruling. However, instead of obeying the order, the three Democratic members of the WEC board appealed the case, and a court that, according to O’Donnell, seats “three liberal judges,” put a stay on the previous ruling, “which allowed the WEC to continue to ignore the clear letter and intent of state law and keep 234,000 phantom voters on Wisconsin’s rolls for as long as two years.”
The danger of these “phantom voters” being present on state registration lists was exacerbated by the undermining of the state’s voter ID requirement due to COVID-19 stay-at-home orders.
As O’Donnell explains, two county clerks in Milwaukee and Dane (Madison) Counties, who were both “highly partisan Democrats,” encouraged voters to classify themselves as “indefinitely confined” due to the “pandemic.” This classification provided a loophole allowing such phantom ballots to be submitted without verification of the voter’s identity.
As a result, voters who were classified as “indefinitely confined” grew from 72,000 last year to almost 250,000 today.
Thus, O’Donnell concluded, with these factors in place, “[f]raudulently voting by mail by assuming the identity of any of the 234,000 phantom voters still on the state’s rolls could not possibly have been easier.”
On Election Night, President Donald Trump was well positioned to win Wisconsin when counting appeared to suspiciously stop, along with media coverage. Perplexed at the cause of the problem, Mr. Trump warily warned in his Election Night speech, “We don’t want them to find any ballots at 4 A.M. in the morning and add them to the list.”
However, in the morning, reports showed a sudden influx of around 100,000 votes for Democratic challenger Joe Biden in Wisconsin, putting him in the lead.
The same day, Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien stated, “There have been reports of irregularities in several Wisconsin counties which raise serious doubts about the validity of the results. The President is well within the threshold to request a recount and we will immediately do so.”
Other concerns indicate the implausibility of Wisconsin’s 89% turnout rate of registered voters when there was only a 66% rate in 2016. How much of this difference was due to mail-in voter fraud? Thomas Del Beccaro answers, “We don’t know. What we do know is that operatives there had the motive and opportunity” to commit such crimes.
