Did a poll worker in Dane County, Wisconsin get caught rigging ballots on live television? No, that's not true: The Dane County Clerk, whose office records election information, explained that this poll worker was doing routine work, preparing ballots to pass out to voters.
The claim appeared in a Facebook post on November 8, 2022, with the caption "Rigging ballots on live TV." A voice belonging to a person off-camera says:
Look at this. What is he marking? What is he doing, flipping through ballots?
This is what the post looked like on Facebook at the time of writing:
The 24-second Facebook video was a recording of B-roll footage playing on Fox News. In the footage, a poll worker is sitting at a table and is seen marking a ballot. The person recording Fox News playing on a TV implies that this poll worker is participating in election fraud.
This poll worker is doing the boring routine work of initialing ballots and circling the ward number to hand to voters so they can vote. What a scandal.
