Will Election be Rigged? Two sides disagree

By Kay Nolan,  November 7, 2016

Wisconsin voters attending rallies over the weekend proved divided by party affiliation in how worried they were that the presidential election could be “rigged.”

But politicians on both sides of the aisle expressed confidence the election will be tallied fair and square.

Republican candidate Donald Trump has talked since August of the presidential election’s potential for being rigged and has said he won’t necessarily accept Tuesday’s results if he does not win.

A number of people interviewed Saturday at a GOP rally in Mukwonago said they’re definitely worried that Tuesday’s election could indeed be rigged. As they waited in the sunshine at Field Park for GOP vice presidential nominee Mike Pence, House Speaker Paul Ryan, Gov. Scott Walker and U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson, among others, to speak, all those interviewed said they believed the election process is likely rigged, both locally and on a national scale.
