19. There are 1000+ municipalities who count votes in this state
Rigging all the tabulators, of all makes and models, between the time they are set up and tested a day or two before election day and the end of election tabulations on election day would be impossible. The pukes aren't that organized in this state.

Add to that the fact that in recounts, and there were many close races this past November where we had them, there were no signs of tampering anywhere.

Lastly, so many of those who work elections, manage the tabulators and count the votes are Dems, every one of which is very aware of the potential issues with their equipment and the process. Every municipality's election chief must make an effort to balance election workers with Dems and Pukes. Local Dem parties can force their own list of poll workers on all municipalities over a certain population, and that threshold is very low. So we have eyes in just about every polling location in the state.

Wisconsin has had a long tradition of holding their electoral process in the eyes of the public, not behind closed doors where this crap can happen.
