WISCONSIN–A federal judge has extended the deadline for online voter registration to March 30 to accommodate voters in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak. Online registration had closed on March 18, but District Judge William M. Conley from the US District Court-Western District of Wisconsin approved an extension on March 20.

The Democratic National Committee and state Democrats petitioned the court to extend both voter registration and deadline for absentee ballot requests to April 3. Instead Conley shortened the registration date to March 30 and left the date to request a ballot at April 2 at 5 p.m.

Residents are encouraged to vote by mail in the April 7 Spring Election, but at this time, the primary is scheduled to go on as scheduled. Clerks are asking for to volunteers to man the polling places. If you would like to volunteer to work the polls on election day, contact your local town, village or city clerk.
