Effort Under Way to Audit Election Results in Central Wisconsin County
Clark County, WI June 7, 2021. Suspicion and doubts about the ‘official’ results of the 2020 election permeate the entire country. All voters in Clark County deserve verification that our election was free of irregularities. The Republican Party of Clark County Wisconsin has concluded that the only way to vindicate the results in their own county is to count the votes again. To that end, they have initiated the process to do just that. The cost of the recount will be over $1,000 and the recount will begin once all of the funds have been raised.

County Republican Chairperson, Rose LaBarbera, acknowledges that Trump won the county handily, but says that many people do not trust the machines. “That is why we’re going to do a hand recount. In theory, the results of the hand recount will exactly match the numbers the machines spat out. There is only one way to find out, and that’s to count them.”
LaBarbera points out that even a small discrepancy could have significant implications. “If Trump lost, it was only by 20,000 votes. A couple of hundred votes siphoned away from all the Trump counties wouldn’t be missed but could really add up.”
There are reports of one machine in the county requiring several attempts before the ballot results matched what the voter intended.
“We actually hope to find no problems with the vote count. That would be a great outcome,” LaBarbera said. “The recount will confirm the outcome. We can’t control what happens in other areas of the country, or in Madison or Milwaukee, but we can make sure our own house is in order. We urge other counties in Wisconsin to do the same.”
A website has been established to provide updates on the audit effort, at www.clarkcount.com.
“This is going to be a big project and require some financial investment. We hope that people will stand with us as we put into practice Reagan’s principle of ‘Trust but verify.’ They can start by going to our website and seeing how they can help,” LaBarbera said.
