Fact Checking Claims About Wisconsin’s Number of Registered Voters

On February 9, Peter Bernegger, spoke before the Wisconsin informational hearing of the Assembly Committee on Campaigns and Elections, claiming to have evidence of voter fraud in the Wisconsin 2020 presidential election. 

Liz Harrington, Donald Trump’s chief spokeswoman, shared a short clip from the hearing that has now been viewed more than 33,000 times and shared close to 2,000 times on Twitter. In the viral clip, Bernegger points out what he believes to be a discrepancy between the number of registered voters and the number of adults in Wisconsin, saying that the “total count of registrants is 7.1 million registrants and it gets to the problem that we only have 4 million adults in the state of Wisconsin.”

Harrington similarly tweeted that: “Wisconsin has 4 million adults but 7.1 million voter registrations.”
