Wisconsin Voters Back Election Integrity Ballot Measures Ahead of November – EVOL

Voters in Wisconsin have approved two Republican-backed election integrity ballot initiatives ahead of the critical November elections.

The measures would change how the battleground state runs elections, according to The Associated Press.

The swing-state voters considered one measure to ban the private funding of elections.

Another cracks down on which individuals can perform election-related tasks.

The AP projected at the time of writing that the first and second questions received 52% and 55.5% support, respectively.

Question 1 targets “Zuckerbucks.”

Zuckerbucks is a reference to the massive amount of funds Meta/Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg poured into election offices across the country in 2020.

The funds, which were pumped into Democrat groups in Wisconsin and other states, were funneled through the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.

The Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL), a left-wing nonprofit, received roughly $350 million from the initiative to help with the administration of elections during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The CTCL granted Wisconsin $10 million for its election efforts last cycle, according to NBC News.

In Wisconsin, Joe Biden “defeated” President Donald Trump by less than one point.

Trump had won the battleground state against Hillary Clinton in 2016 by a similar margin.

Conservatives argue that “Zuckerbucks” were used to unfairly boost Democrat turnout
