Wisconsin’s largest vote audit finds no machine errors
The Wisconsin Election Commission has unanimously approved the results of a hand-count audit of the November election, which found that voting machines worked as intended, according to a report by the Associated Press.
Auditors inspected 222,075 ballots — the largest audit in state history — and found only six errors, all caused by humans. They found no signs of hacking, programming errors or machine malfunctions during the midterm.
Five of the errors discovered were the result of creases through unmarked ballot ovals, which caused voting machines to flag the ballots as overvoted. The sixth error identified was a ballot filled out in green ink, which caused a voting machine not to identify one of the ovals marked.
