Rigged Election? "It's just really not possible" says Waukesha Co. Clerk
"Rigged" is the word Donald Trump is using to describe the election during campaign events. He is even more explicit in his tweets.
At 7:33 a.m. on Monday wrote "Of course there is large scale voter fraud happening on and before election day. Why do Republican leaders deny what's going on? So naive!"
Kathleen Novack, the Waukesha County Clerk, said this in response.
"It's just really not possible," Novack said.
"The reality is that the county went to new election equipment this year that is, from my perspective, totally unhackable," Novack said.
She says the machines are not connected to the internet and that there is also paper trail. The week following the election she sits down with representatives from the major parties and double checks the numbers.
She also mentions that this year people will need a photo ID to vote.
"It's really a very, very tight system. and as a lifelong auditor I can tell you that I think that the controls are incredible," Novack said.
The Republican Party of Wisconsin had this to say about Trump's rigged election allegations: "We are fully confident in the election process."
