The coronavirus is not eligible to vote, but it could still loom large on Election Day. The Wisconsin Elections Commission has been encouraging prospective voters to request an absentee ballot in recent weeks as the COVID-19 outbreak has discouraged people from attending mass gatherings. For those who cannot register online, the Door County Emergency Support Coalition is connecting absentee voters with their municipal clerks to check their identification card and written request. On Election Day itself, Door County Clerk Jill Lau says it may need to replace dozens of poll workers who are unable to serve because of age and health concerns related to the coronavirus.
