Timing, not staffing challenges local clerks

By Tim Kowols

 

A bounty of poll workers may be the silver lining for Algoma City Clerk Jamie Jackson if the state decides to add another election in 2020. Municipals clerks across the state are voicing their concerns about the Wisconsin Legislature’s plan to move the presidential primary to March, which would be in between planned election days in February and April. For absentee voting, Jackson says the time frame to send ballots out for the February and April elections is already very tight. She believes if it does happen, she will not have a problem getting people to work the polls one extra day.

 

 

The increased cost of hosting a third election in the spring is another reason why clerks are balking at the idea, while Democrats are accusing Republicans of trying to protect a state Supreme Court seat.
