The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) said in a new report Friday that for the first time in electoral history, the state of Wisconsin had more lost and undeliverable ballots than the margin of victory for a statewide candidate.
While President Joe Biden only won Wisconsin by 20,682 votes, 82,766 mail-in ballots–or more than four times that margin–were lost or undeliverable across the state.
“We now know the cost of the rush to mail balloting – lost ballots . . . This isn’t the way to run an election. Mail ballots invite error, disenfranchisement of voters, and puts the inept U.S. Post Office determining the outcome of elections,” PILF President J. Christian Adams said in the statement.
In 2020, 1.4 million mail-in ballots were sent to voters that were nervous about voting in public in the middle of a pandemic. The ballots represented 86% of the 1.6 million votes cast in the state.
“When Wisconsin loses track of more ballots than the difference between winning and losing its Electoral College votes, that is a core system failure,” the report said.
