US President Donald Trump's campaign has reportedly paid the sum of $3 million USD for a recount of two counties in Wisconsin, which they considered had the "worst irregularities".

The recounts in question are in Milwaukee and Dane counties, which are considered to be heavily Democrat, although the Trump campaign considers them important, as Biden's lead in the whole state is only 20,608 votes as of the last counting.

According to the Star Tribune, there are issues with missing information being wrongly filled in by officials on returned absentee ballots, among others. Jim Troupis, an attorney working for the Trump campaign, stated:

"The people of Wisconsin deserve to know whether their election processes worked in a legal and transparent way. Regrettably, the integrity of the election results cannot be trusted without a recount in these two counties and uniform enforcement of Wisconsin absentee ballot requirements. We will not know the true results of the election until only the legal ballots cast are counted."

Milwaukee County is Wisconsin's most populous county, and Dane County contains Madison, the state's second-largest city.

Wisconsin election officials currently maintain that the actual ballots themselves were not altered in any way shape or form by their clerks or anybody else, and that said clerks are allowed to fix missing components of addresses if they have reliable information on hand for those addresses.

Also at issue are the number of people who have declared themselves as "indefinitely confined" due to the pandemic in order to get around the photo ID requirements in place for voting in the state of Wisconsin, possibly due to bad advice by Dane County Clerk Scott McDonell, who advised people to use the status to avoid the voted ID requirement.
