Meagan Wolfe, director of the Wisconsin Elections Commission, said during a virtual news conference Thursday that no Wisconsin absentee ballots were found. She said she did not know if there were ballots from other states.
“There was mail found outside of Appleton and that mail did not include any Wisconsin ballots,” Wolfe said.
When news broke about mail in a ditch, the White House seized on the situation to rail against mail voting as “a system that’s subject to fraud.”
“In fact, in the last 24 hours, police in Greenville, Wisconsin, found mail in a ditch, and it included absentee ballots,” said Kayleigh McEnany, President Donald Trump’s press secretary.
