H.O.T. tells us that in September of 2021 HOT received part of a records request from the City of Racine. From the emails, Racine, Wisconsin City Clerk Tara Coolidge sends a City of Racine ballot and envelope to Michael Spitzer Rubenstein to develop a tracking app with former Facebook designer Ari Steinberg. This app would gather information from WisVote in real-time as to who voted and who did not.
WisVote is a comprehensive election management system that municipalities and counties use to manage voters, absentee ballots, poll workers, and other election details. WEC developed the current system in 2016 to ensure voter data contained within remains secure. The email above states on 10-20-20 “So all I need from you is the data from WisVote”. “You can download the full list of active voters and absentee ballots. I can process everything, so you won’t need to.”
The Gableman investigation has this information.
