There is more confusion about absentee ballots heading into the November election in Wisconsin.
The state’s Elections Commission yesterday deadlocked on whether election clerks should be able to fill-in missing information on absentee ballots on their own. The Commission in January okayed rules that would allow clerks to do just that, but those rules expire before November. Democratic commissioners say clerks should be allowed to correct mistakes so that absentee votes can be counted.
Republican commissioners say voters should be expected to review their ballots and read the instructions carefully.
