After in-depth research, records requests and speaking with officials there is a loop hole in our election process.
County Clerks run the elections in the State of Wisconsin, as they do in most other states. All townships and cities report their results "up to" the County Clerks. The Clerks then tabulate all these votes and report the total(s) to the Secretary of States. But what goes "down to" the Clerks, then onto the Cities and Townships is where voter fraud would be easy to commit.
100% of Wisconsin's 72 counties use computerized voting systems. Names now common in the public domain such as Dominion Voting Systems, HART and ES&S. This is the concern: each new election sees a need for changing the software of the voting systems. This needs to be done for such things as different elections, i.e. school boards, judgeships, congressman both state and federal. Thus, each time there is an election (and there can be many in a year, such as 6 of them for example) a new software update is needed. Who writes the software? Private companies. Who sees the software? Private companies. Does the Clerks of the Counties see the software? No. In fact in the State of Wisconsin it is illegal per state law for any person to see the private companies' software. Wis. Stats. Sec. 19.35(1); 5.02(4m) & (24w) & (24g) & 24(r); 5.905; and 19.32(2). Related to this coverup-by-law is no person (except election officials) can view the original ballots: per law. See Wis. Stats. Ch's 5-9, Wis. Stats. and Ch.'s EL2-21, Wis. Adm. Code. Thus, you as a citizen cannot view the software conducting the elections nor can you view the original ballots. This scenario is ripe for election rigging and fraud.
One person (or evil foreign country) could go to the private company programmer and pay him/them off with, for example, $25,000 in cash. All the programmer would have to do is write the code in the new election update throwing the election to the desired candidate. For example, if Joe Smith and Henry Fox were running for County DA - and the evil people wanted Mr. Fox to win - the software code is written to add up all votes of say 4,330 then give Fox 105% and Smith 95%. An eighth grader could write such coding. One Clerk told me this would not be possible as days before the election they run a test of the system running about 30 ballots through. This only proves she did not know how easy it would be to carry out. The programmer would know this (because it is state law to run such a test ahead of each election) and simply put in a qualifier whereby the malware would not be triggered until more than 1,000 votes were cast.
Here is the rigging I have found: numerous people showed up on election day last November 3rd in Wisconsin and were told "you already voted"...when they had not. More to come on this particular issue. All the above shows why the law needs to be changed so the ballots can be examined along with the software.
