Elections Commission Agrees to Mail Absentee Ballot Applications

MADISON, WI (Ben Caxton) — The Wisconsin Elections Commission on Wednesday unanimously agreed to send roughly 2.7 million voters an absentee ballot application. `WisPolitics reports that commission staff anticipates just 10 percent of recipients will respond to the mailing, which will cost around $2.3 million, but that the anticipated response rate was a “crude estimate” based on experience with past mailings. The final mailing is set to go to all registered voters in the state — except those who have already requested an absentee ballot and those who may have moved and have not confirmed their address. The commission also approved a grant program that would send each municipality $200 plus $1.10 for each registered voter to cover upcoming costs.
