GOP U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson has launched a website asking supporters to report instances of suspected voter fraud.

It’s part of a joint effort with the state and national Republican parties to invest in such efforts for the fall election.

The website will allow people to report instances of suspected fraud. Johnson’s campaign said attorneys will then review submissions to determine possible action.

“Everyone in Wisconsin should have the assurance that their vote counts and it will not be canceled by a fraudulent vote,” Johnson said. “We are doing everything in our power in 2022 to restore confidence in our election by ensuring Wisconsin elections laws are fully complied with.”

The latest Marquette University Law School Poll found 63 percent of registered voters were very or somewhat confident in the results of the 2020 presidential election. But only 34 percent of Republicans said they were confident in the results.

The effort comes as Republicans raised a series of meritless concerns about the 2020 election.

Johnson nearly a year ago urged state lawmakers to try to take over administration of the election and direct clerks to ignore directives from the Wisconsin Elections Commission. Lawmakers didn’t act on his call.

“Ron Johnson is the last person Wisconsin voters should trust to ‘restore confidence’ in our elections,” said Lauren Chou, a spokesperson for Dem candidate Mandela Barnes. “It’s shameful Johnson is casting doubt and refusing to say whether he will accept the results of the election, but voting is safe and secure and people should be empowered to cast their vote and know it will be counted.”
