After concerns surrounding election integrity that have mounted due to mass mail-in ballots in 2020, efforts to prevent continued issues in future elections have grown popular. Now, Turning Point USA is pledging to dedicate $5 million to ballot chasing in Wisconsin.
According to the Post Millennial, Democrats used fear tactics during the 2020 pandemic to coerce voters into choosing to vote by mail instead of in person. Leaders refused to actively assess the risks of voter fraud, or take investigations of fraud allegations seriously, and so the 2020 election results have been continuously questioned.
Now, Voter integrity advocate Scott Presler is partnering with Turning Point USA to lead the charge toward ballot chasing. This encourages Americans to vote early and turn in their ballot quickly. It also works to ensure that every vote is properly counted.
Wisconsin is a swing state. In 2020, more than 500 drop boxes were utilized for mail-in ballots due to the pandemic, according to The Federalist. This was later deemed a violation of state laws, yet election fraud cases in the state and other areas have faced intense scrutiny.
Turning Point USA founder and CEO Charlie Kirk tweeted about the need to ballot chase in swing states, naming Wisconsin first.
Kirk discussed the decision to partner with Scott Presler on his show. The Citizen Free Press posted a clip of this to Twitter in which he stated, “We are doing zero early voting. Imagine what we could do in Arizona, Georgie, Wisconsin with even a little bit of this investment.”
Scott Presler runs the popular Twitter account The Persistence. He has vowed “to make Joe Biden a one-term president” through his grassroots voter registration efforts.
In response to the new partnership with Turning Point USA, Presler tweeted about it and said, “See you soon, Wisconsin!”
