  • Watkins is a former administrator on 8kun, a far-right messaging board, and a promoter of the QAnon conspiracy.
  • Powell has based her challenge to the election result on the baseless theory that voting machines were fixed as part of a plot to steal the election from Trump.

Record numbers of ballots cast in Washington but failed candidate questions results

OLYMPIA – Washington certified its 2020 election Tuesday with some 750,000  more ballots cast and counted than ever before, and a turnout just a shade under the record set in 2008.

Some 4.1 million residents cast a ballot, for a turnout by registered voters of 84.14%. Twelve years ago, the turnout was 84.6%, although less than 3.1 million residents voted. The state population and its voter rolls have grown that much in just over a decade.

Despite a pandemic, the first presidential election, with same-day voter registration and cyber security experts warning of possible hacking, the election ran relatively smoothly in the state’s 39 counties, Secretary of State Kim Wyman said. 

“It’s a proud moment for Washington,” she said.

Failed Republican gubernatorial candidate Loren Culp and his campaign have raised allegations of corruption on social media platforms, questioning if the ballots of people who died before the election were marked

Trump sues to challenge Wisconsin election results

President Donald Trump filed a lawsuit Tuesday in Wisconsin seeking to disqualify more than 221,000 ballots in the state’s two most Democratic counties, a longshot attempt to overturn Joe Biden’s win in the battleground state he lost by nearly 20,700 votes.

Trump filed the day after Democratic Gov. Tony Evers and the chairwoman of the Wisconsin Elections Commission certified Biden as the winner of the state’s 10 Electoral College votes. Trump asked the Wisconsin Supreme Court to take the case directly, rather than have it start in a lower court, and order Evers to withdraw the certification.

The state’s highest court, controlled 4-3 by conservatives, also is considering whether to hear two other lawsuits filed by conservatives seeking to invalidate ballots cast during the presidential election.

Trump repeats many claims he made during a recount of votes in Milwaukee and Dane counties that large swaths of absentee votes were illegally

Georgia governor, defying Trump, says he’ll ‘follow the law’ on election results

Georgia officials on Monday responded to a barrage of attacks by President Trump by saying they would continue to “follow the law” on counting votes and certifying the election results, which show a narrow win by President-elect Joe Biden.

Trump has asked Gov. Brian Kemp to intervene and overrule his secretary of state, who has maintained that the election in the state was conducted honestly.

“Georgia law prohibits the governor from interfering in elections,” a spokesman for Kemp said in a statement. “The Secretary of State, who is an elected constitutional officer, has oversight over elections that cannot be overridden by executive order.

“As the governor has said repeatedly, he will continue to follow the law and encourage the Secretary of State to take reasonable steps — including a sample audit of signatures — to restore trust and address serious issues that have been raised,” the spokesman added.

Board of Canvassers certifies Michigan’s election results

The Board of State Canvassers certified Michigan’s November general election results Monday.

The board, made up of two Republicans and two Democrats, met Nov. 23 to make the vote count official after all 83 Michigan counties certified their election results, which include Joe Biden’s 2.8% statewide victory over President Donald Trump. The state certification of the more than 5.5 million ballots cast comes after Trump and his attorneys and supporters persistently called for delaying certification. Board of State Canvasser Norman Shinkle abstained from the vote. The other three board members all voted in favor of certifying.

Aaron Van Langevelde, a Republican canvasser and an attorney for the House Republican Caucus, said the board doesn’t have many options outside of performing its duty to certify the election.

“This board must respect authority entrusted to it and follow the law as it is written. We must not attempt to exercise power we
