MILWAUKEE – Reports that the canvass of the 2022 Spring Election conducted by the Milwaukee County Election Commission has stopped are incorrect. The Milwaukee County Election Commission convened the county-wide canvass of all State and County contests at 9 a.m. this morning at the Milwaukee County Courthouse in Room G7. The canvass will continue daily from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. until its conclusion. The canvass is open to the public and is subject to the State’s Open Meetings Law.
The Milwaukee County Election Commission has commenced the canvassing of the 18th District Supervisory write-in race and will continue upon the receipt of all the necessary materials from the City of Milwaukee, which are expected no later than Monday, April 11, 2022. The entirety of the 18th Supervisory District is located within the City of Milwaukee.
“The election canvass is an open process and every member of the public is free to observe it,” said County Clerk George Christenson. “Individuals spreading false claims are encouraged to come to Room G7 of the Courthouse and see for themselves that the canvass is ongoing, before making inaccurate and misleading statements.”
The purpose of the canvass is to certify the results of the elections for State and County offices and to make the official determination of the outcome of the election results.
