MADISON, Wis. (AP) -

Wisconsin elections officials are standing firm on information that must be included on an absentee ballot in order for it to be counted.

Wisconsin Elections Commission administrator Mike Haas is recommending in a memo Wednesday that no changes be made to a policy requiring that a person witnessing an absentee ballot being completed fill in their full address.

Milwaukee and Racine elections officials have said they've received hundreds of ballots with missing information.

Haas says in the memo that the commission stands by its guidance to local election officials that the witness address contain at minimum a street number, street name and name of municipality.

The Elections Commission was to vote on the recommendation Friday.
