MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Three people in Wisconsin who filed a federal lawsuit alleging widespread fraud in absentee voting have dropped the lawsuit.
A court filing Monday didn’t give a reason and an attorney for the voters declined to say why, citing attorney-client privilege.
All three went strongly for President-elect Joe Biden, who defeated Trump by about 20,500 votes in the state. Counties were expected to finish certifying the results this week.
When their canvass is final, President Donald Trump has a one-day window to request a recount that he must pay for.
Last week, Wisconsin’s elections chief said there remains no evidence of any wrongdoing, fraud, or irregularity in the state’s presidential election, as counties work to wrap up certifying their votes and estimating how much it would cost to recount them.
Elections chief Meagan Wolfe said Thursday that nothing unusual has come up during the county certification of the votes.
