6c2400d5

The number of votes cast in Wisconsin was higher than the number of registered voters.

The post was comparing the vote count from 2020 with the number of registered voters from 2018 and falsely suggesting voter fraud.

As several states are currently counting votes in the 2020 U.S. presidential race, on election day a rumor that Wisconsin had counted more votes (3,239,920) than it had registered voters (3,129,000) went viral on social media. Twitter users claimed that this was clear evidence of fraud. However, the post was comparing the vote count from 2020 with the number of registered voters from 2018.

The Wisconsin Election Commission on their website states that the “State of Wisconsin had 3,684,726 active registered voters on November 1, 2020.” The New York Times election monitoring map notes that a total of 3,297,137 votes have been registered in Wisconsin so far.

Therefore, we conclude that the number of votes does not exceed the number of registered users.
