National Guard Help Not Enough to Eliminate Poll Worker Shortage

MADISON, WI (Ben Caxton) — More than 24-hundred members of the Wisconsin National Guard worked at polling stations across the state on Election Day. `The Guard members, dressed in civilian clothing, served at polls in 71 of the state’s 72 counties – all except Florence County – due to a critical shortage of poll workers resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. The Guard members served as poll workers in the counties where they live. The counties with the most working were Milwaukee with 264, Dane with 249, and Brown with 132.`The state Elections Commission estimated the overall shortage of poll workers at 7,000 for Tuesday.
