"We going to continue to emphasize accuracy over speed...and so it may take a little longer because of the sheer volume of those [absentee ballot] requests," Wisconsin Elections Commission Administrator Meagan Wolfe said during her election update news conference. Wolfe addressed the length of time it will take to process results for this fall's election. In relation to the spring primary, Wolfe said, "April is not really a measuring stick for future elections. The court extended the deadline for ballots to be received." She added that the commission will continue to work with local election officials to understand the process and volume of absentee requests they will have and highlighted that Wisconsin law does not allow for early processing or tabulating of absentee ballots.
