Municipalities lack enough workers for in-person voting
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A new report indicates more than 100 municipalities lack enough poll workers to offer any in-person voting on Election Day.
The Wisconsin Elections Commission released documents Tuesday that include findings from a survey of local clerks preparing to run Wisconsin’s spring election on April 7 in the face of the coronavirus. The survey found 111 municipalities are short 671 poll workers, leaving them too-short handed to offer in-person voting at the polls. Another 126 municipalities are short 2,713 poll workers, leaving them unable to staff all their polling sites. The municipalities are spread across the state.
