Polls close across the state at 8:00 tonight but don’t expect results for several days. Voters are allowed to submit absentee ballots as long as they are postmarked by today, April 7th and received by Monday. It will take a couple of days for clerks to collect all the ballots so now the counting deadline is at 4 p.m. Monday, April 13th.
The Wisconsin Elections Commission says no totals will be released today.
As our Primary Election continues today, voting across the state continues with no issues reported to the Wisconsin Elections Commission. Despite efforts by the governor to delay the election due to the coronavirus the State Supreme Court and U.S. Supreme Court yesterday ordered the in-person voting to be held today as scheduled.
Voters outside many polling places including in Green Bay and Milwaukee say they stood for hours on long lines and practiced social distancing as they waited to cast their ballots.
