Door County Clerk Jill Lau is asking voters to be patient when it comes to tracking their participation. The slim margins of which former Vice President Joe Biden won the race by unofficially has caused many voters to check on-line to make sure their vote was counted. Instead, they are being greeted by a message saying they have a 45-day window to have their voter participation recorded. Lau says Door County has not begun entering voter participation. Her office’s focus right now is on next week’s canvass and a potential recount.
Lau says the calls and emails they are receiving about their election participation are taking away from the county and municipal offices’ ability to tackle that task and others. Over 20,200 ballots were cast in Door County, which would be about a 92 percent turnout rate for registered voters according to data from the Wisconsin Elections Commission.
