THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION IN WISCONSIN PRELIMINARY REPORT Richard Hayes Phillips, Ph.D. excerpts (sorry no link to this report yet).
WI Voter turnout, according to the latest unofficial figures, was highest in Sauk County, at 92.28% countywide (34,323 ballots cast, 37,195 registered voters). Upon closer examination, these numbers are not credible.
In the City of Baraboo, Sauk County, according to the latest numbers posted on official government websites, there were 8,390 ballots cast, and 6,923 registered voters, which equates to a voter turnout of 121.19%.
In the Village of Stockholm, Pepin County, voter turnout was 105.56% (57 ballots cast, 54 registered voters).
In the City of Wisconsin Dells, Sauk County, voter turnout was 102.30% (89 ballots cast, 87 registered voters).
In the Town of McKinley, Polk County, voter turnout was 100.00% (191 ballots cast, 191 registered voters. Nobody died or moved away. And everybody voted.
In the Town of Tipler, Florence County, previous figures showed a voter turnout of 101.96% (104 ballots cast, 102 registered voters). These numbers have since been amended.
In another 11 towns and villages, voter turnout was 95% or higher. In still another In another 11 towns and villages, voter turnout was 95% or higher. In still another 80 towns and villages, voter turnout was 90% or higher. (I will have more to say on these high-turnout towns and villages in a follow-up report). Either these voter turnout percentages are an historic achievement, unparalleled in my experience, or the unofficial results are not true and correct.
