All signs are pointing to a record absentee voter turn-out this year.
The Wisconsin Election Commission yesterday said more than 300 thousand people have returned an absentee ballot for this month’s primary election. That is three-times the number of people who voted absentee in the 2018 primary, and four-times as many as in the 2016 primary. WEC Administrator Meagan Wolfe says the numbers hint that many more people will vote absentee in November. She is expecting more than two million people to vote absentee in that election.
