Absentee balloting begins today in recall elections

by

UNDATED (WSAU) Absentee voting begins today for the June 5 recall elections.

Ballots were sent out last Friday to those requesting them by mail – and today is when folks can start voting at municipal clerks’ offices.

Reid Magney of the state Government Accountability Board expects an increase in absentee voting this time, especially because many people will be on vacation. Also, students who are registered in their college towns won’t be around because their summer break will have started. And officials say many will choose to vote early to avoid the crush of people expected at the polls on Election Day.

Appleton Elections’ Clerk Jane Booth said 1,100 requests for absentee ballots have already been made – over 1,500 are expected. In Green Bay, an extra staff member has been hired in the Brown County Clerk’s office to handle the recall vote. The cost of the vote in that county is expected to be around $200,000.

State officials have said both the primary and general recall contests will cost about $17-million to run statewide.

Governor Scott Walker is being challenged in his recall vote by Democrat Tom Barrett. In a separate election, Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch faces Democrat Mahlon Mitchell. Four state Senate districts also have contests.
