Recently, on Wednesday, a question was raised, “How many registered voters in Wisconsin?” and the people took to the social media in various places in order to allege that Wisconsin had seen more votes cast than the population which is registered to vote. Even a tweet has made a claim of the fact the state has recorded a voter turnout of 101%. Besides, there was another tweet that revealed that more than 111,000 extra votes were cast which was beyond the number registered for the voters. However, the latter post has been deleted from the social media handle.
Also, that one post has garnered thousands of retweets in just an hour’s time, which eventually had made a jump to Facebook where the post was shared quite a good number of times. Indeed, this fact is impossible as the residents who are not registered to vote are no way eligible to cast a ballot. Wisconsin is one of the 19 states along with that of the District of Columbia which allows the same day voter registration. Certainly, it depicts that the correct comparison is about the eligible voters and not just about the registered ones.
