Just In: Milwaukee Board of Canvassers Agree to Review Absentee Ballots and Infuriates the Biden Team


After lengthy discussions with the Trump campaign, the Milwaukee Board of Canvassers ultimately agreed to set aside certain absentee ballots during the recount.

The Trump team had several legal objections before the board began recounting nearly 460,000 ballots in Milwaukee County.

Here’s a list of requests:

The Milwaukee Board of Canvassers agreed to instruct poll workers to set aside absentee ballot envelopes that:

  • had different colored ink
  • were marked as indefinitely confined

It also appears we have observers from both campaigns.

Although it remains in question how effectively observers can see each ballot.

This leaked photo certainly won’t ease anyone’s skepticism.

Despite only a handful of Trump requests being fulfilled, the Biden campaign didn’t take kindly to the news.

After seeing the number of ballots set aside thus far, it’s not hard to imagine why they’d be upset.

Fox 11 News has been following the recount closely:

Milwaukee County will recount nearly 460,000 ballots — costing an estimated $2.3 million. The recount process must be done by Dec. 1.

“The timeline, we will continue to plow through this as we go. We expect additional objections and those come to the commission. We’ll just continue to work through the process,” George Christenson, the Milwaukee County clerk, said.

Observers were present at the Wisconsin Center to watch the recounting process. They are not allowed to touch any recount materials, but can walk around the facility and bring any concerns to the Board of Canvassers.

Both Joe Biden and President Donald Trump supporters were directed not to speak to the media.

FOX 11 did speak to one Trump supporter, who says she feels it’s her duty as an American to observe the recount.

“I don’t think the voting anymore has been honest, especially in this election and the previous election. If we all don’t make sure the recount is correct, we don’t know if we have the right person,” Ruth Koehler from Elm Grove said.
