Terry Kovarik -- The Door County Clerk says she's pleased that early voting limits adopted by a lame duck session of the state legislature have been struck down. U.S. District Judge James Peterson ruled the law limiting early voting to two weeks statewide before an election was similar to limits he struck down in 2016. Some communities previously offered early voting up to six weeks before an election. Door County Clerk Jill Lau says counties and municipalities should have flexibility in offering early voting.
Lau says local election officials were told in advance of possible court challenges to the lame duck early voting law.
