The time to vote is RIGHT NOW. The Wisconsin spring election is April 7 which, based on the projections of the experts, is right in the middle of the virus blasting this country. Voting will be the last thing on people’s minds and many may be under quarantine. Standing in line for an hour with crowds of people will be the last thing anybody wants to do.
The good news is you don’t have to do that. In almost all municipalities in the state, early voting is underway right now. It’s very simple. You go to your city hall or village hall (or whatever site is being used), you fill out your ballot and you’re done. The virus will only stop from voting those who don’t vote now. If we can plan enough to buy 873 rolls of Charmin, we can certainly take five minutes to vote.
