Wisconsin’s spring election is still a go, but voters in Door and Kewaunee Counties will have a little extra time to get their voice heard. U.S. District Judge William Conley chose not to cancel Tuesday’s election but rather gave absentee voters a break when it came to making sure their vote counted. In addition to giving voters an extra day to register absentee, Conley’s ruling gave clerks until April 13th to count votes and people the ability to submit their mail-in ballots without a witness signature. Given the unusual circumstances, Door County Clerk Jill Lau says there are still a lot of details to sort out.

State and national leaders from the Republican Party appealed the decision, so some of the details are still subject to change. As of Thursday, less than 45 percent of the 9,571 absentee ballots requested by voters in Door and Kewaunee Counties have been returned.
