Wisconsin Still Planning to Vote on April 7
Legislative leaders declined the proposal of Gov. Tony Evers postponing in-person voting for the presidential primary and state elections Tuesday, April 7.
Evers called the Legislature into a special session on April 4 to take up legislation avoiding in-person voting.
The legislation created an all-mail election with a deadline of May 26 to return ballots.
An effort in federal court to delay the election also failed, but did result in a one-week extension for absentee ballots to be received.
