Wochit Postables
Democratic Gov. Tony Evers issued an executive order about postponing Wisconsin’s primary election. According to Reuters, he wants to move the election from April 7 to June 9. Evers cited health risks as the reason but Republicans said they would challenge it in the state Supreme Court. Evers tried to cancel in-person voting and extend the time to return absentee ballots into late May. Republicans rejected that proposal and Evers then moved forward with his executive order.
