Governor Tony Evers proposed a mail-in election Friday afternoon, asking that all registered voters in the state be given an absentee ballot. Clerks in Door and Kewaunee Counties are rejecting that idea. The concerns range from budgetary matters to election integrity, says Kewaunee Clerk Jamie Annoye.
Jill Lau says plenty of people heeded the call to vote using an absentee ballot already.
Lau says that with so many votes received at this point, even a postponement would be troublesome. That would mean that most will have potentially cast their ballots weeks, or months, before Election Day proper.
