Election Commission Expects Smooth Election

In a conference call this morning the Wisconsin Elections Commission expected a smooth election today. There are enough poll workers in all of the jurisdictions, and there is a pool of emergency workers from the Wisconsin National Guard, local municipalities, and the state if shortages of workers occur.

Votes will be slower to be counted than normal due to the very high number of absentee ballots that have been filed.

As of 7:30 this morning, 2061040 absentee ballots have been sent in Wisconsin, and 1886533 have been returned. 644843 people have voted early in the state. The full spreadsheets on absentee ballots can be found at https://elections.wi.gov/node/7222.
