(WLUK) -- The Latest on the impact of the coronavirus pandemic in Northeast Wisconsin:
Shortly after the polls closed Tuesday, DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement on the Wisconsin primary election:
“This was a dark day for our democracy. In the middle of one of the worst public health emergencies in modern history, the Republican Party forced the people of Wisconsin to choose between their safety and their vote. The craven self-interest of the GOP knows no bounds. They suppressed people’s voices and put lives in danger – all in service of their own partisan ambition. Democrats are showing true leadership during this crisis by advocating for the health and safety of the American people and the integrity of our democracy. And come Election Day in November, voters will remember which party had their back.”
The village of Allouez says election inspectors will reconvene to continue processings and counting absentee ballots on Wednesday at the Allouez Village Hall on Libal St. starting at 8 a.m.
The Brown County Clerk’s Office is reminding voters that all polling places in Wisconsin close at 8:00 p.m. However, voters who are still in line at the time the polls close will still be able to vote.
Once it's 8 p.m., the chief inspector will announce the closing of the polls and the End of Line Officer will stand behind the last voter in line to clearly identify who is entitled to vote.
Once all voters have cast their ballots, the polling place will remain open to the public and the process of reconciling poll lists, counting ballots, and completing the required forms begins. The doors to the polling place must NOT be locked. Anyone, including a candidate, has the right to observe the end of night activities.
The Wisconsin National Guard has hundreds of soldiers serving as poll workers during today's spring election.
Gov. Tony Evers deployed the Guard to help at the polls across the state as regular poll workers quit amid coronavirus fears.
In Northeast Wisconsin's most populous counties, Capt. Joe Trovato says about 110 members were assigned to Brown County, 75 to Outagamie County and 70 to Winnebago County.
Guard members are wearing street clothes, not their uniforms, at the polls.
Some polling places in Northeast Wisconsin are offering curbside voting. Brown County says curbside voting is available at all of its polling locations. Workers will bring you your ballot and conduct voting at your vehicle or at the polling place entrance. Oshkosh is also offering curbside voting. If you would like to vote curbside, you should contact your municipal clerk beforehand to discuss an arrival time and what you should do when you get to the voting location.
