WAUKESHA, Wis. — With less than six months until Election Day, the group Keep Our Republic held an event in Waukesha Tuesday evening, attempting to restore trust in Wisconsin’s elections and counter election conspiracies ahead of the presidential election in November.

“Combating disinformation and misinformation, that is a challenge, but I think we’re making a dent,” Kathy Bernier said, the former Republican state senator leading the Wisconsin Chapter of Keep Our Republic.

Tuesday’s event featured local election officials from Waukesha and Milwaukee counties, spending two-and-a-half hours explaining the election process and answering questions.

Keep Our Republic, billed as a nonpartisan nonprofit, has held similar events in Washington, La Crosse, Brown and Chippewa counties.
