The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) said on Friday that 82,766 mail ballots sent to voters in Wisconsin’s November 2020 presidential election “went missing or undeliverable,” a number more than four times greater than Joe Biden’s 20,682 vote certified margin of victory in the state.
More than 1.6 million votes were cast in the November 2020 presidential election in Wisconsin, and Biden’s certified margin of victory was just 1.2 percent of all votes cast.
“83K mail ballots went missing or undeliverable amid 20k vote margin of victory in WI 2020 Presidential,” the headline read in a statement that accompanied the release of a report by PILF on Friday morning.
“We now know the cost of the rush to mail balloting – lost ballots. The federal data show the 2020 election had more mail ballots that were never counted than the margin of victory in the Presidential election in Wisconsin. This isn’t the way to run an election. Mail ballots invite error, disenfranchisement of voters, and puts the inept U.S. Post Office determining the outcome of elections,” PILF President J. Christian Adams said in the statement.
The report showed that, unlike the results of the 2012 and 2016, the number of “missing or undeliverable” mail ballots in 2020 exceeded the margin of victory in the election to determine which presidential candidate would be awarded the state’s ten electoral college votes.

Wisconsin “lost track” of roughly 82,000 mail-in ballots in the state in the 2020 presidential election, the Daily Signal reported.
Joe Biden defeated Donald Trump by 20,682 votes in Wisconsin last November.
Wisconsin losing track of more than 82,000 mail-in ballots in the state represents more than four times the margin of difference between Biden and Trump, according to a report from the nonprofit Public Interest Legal Foundation.
The Daily Signal reports:
Joe Biden defeated then-President Donald Trump by 20,682 votes in Wisconsin in the November presidential election. However, according to the legal foundation’s report, 82,766 mail-in ballots in the state were either undeliverable or suffered an unknown fate.
A further breakdown by the legal group shows that 1.4 million ballots were sent by mail. Of those, 6,458 were undeliverable. An additional 2,981 mail-in ballots were rejected. The vast majority, 76,308, met an “unknown” fate.
“The federal data show the 2020 election had more mail ballots that were never counted than the margin of victory in the presidential election in Wisconsin,” J. Christian Adams, president of the Public Interest Legal Foundation, said in a statement.
“This isn’t the way to run an election,” said Adams, a former Justice Department lawyer in the Voting Section. “Mail ballots invite error, disenfranchisement of voters, and puts the inept U.S. post office determining the outcome of elections.”
An election integrity group alleges that their investigation into the 2020 election identified over 157,000 illegally cast ballots in Wisconsin.
Matt Braynard, who leads the group Looking Ahead America Research, argues in their report that they’ve located more than enough illegally cast ballots to establish “beyond a reasonable doubt that the deserved winner of Wisconsin is unknowable.”
The Election Wiz summarized some of the main findings in the report:
Last fall, roughly 240,000 voters in Wisconsin said they were indefinitely confined, nearly a four-fold increase from the 2016 election.
Of that number, over 169,000 claimed the indefinitely confined status for the first time.
In a victory for the Trump campaign last December, the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled election officials were wrong to suggest voters could claim the status of “indefinitely confined” based on the Covid pandemic.
Following the November election, LAA took up the Wisconsin Supreme Court’s challenge.
Researchers used a randomized sample of voters who claimed the confinement status for the first time in 2020.
