Certification of Election Results is a Win for Wisconsin Voters
MILWAUKEE – All Voting is Local Wisconsin State Director, Shauntay Nelson, issued the following statement in response to Governor Evers’ certification of the November 3 presidential election results yesterday:
“Despite the obstacles presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, Wisconsin voters came out in record numbers to make their voices heard. Yesterday’s certification of the election results, weeks after its conclusion, is affirmation that voters’ voices were indeed heard.
“We celebrate the will of Wisconsinites who stood firm against chaos and uncertainty during a pandemic to cast their ballots. The certification yesterday after weeks of frivolous recounts in Dane and Milwaukee counties is a testament to the strength of the people of Wisconsin, and the commitment of election officials who worked tirelessly to ensure that every vote was counted.
“We thank the Wisconsin Elections Commission and Governor Evers for honoring the will of the people so that we can move forward with tackling the many critical issues facing our state, including the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on Black and Brown communities.”
