Plan To Mail Ballots

All the details have been hammered out and the Wisconsin Elections Commission is moving forward with a plan to mail two-point-seven million absentee ballot applications to voters. The final step was approving the wording of a letter that will accompany the mailing. About 80 percent of Wisconsin’s registered voters will get the mailing before the November presidential election. The commission is also considering a request to establish a rule prohibiting the practice of ballot harvesting where outside groups collect and return large numbers of absentee ballots.
