WORT FM: State Faces Unusual Election Circumstances

Shauntay Nelson, Wisconsin State Director of All Voting Is Local, says one of those measures would be to waive the requirement that a witness sign an absentee ballot. “I think about people who are living alone. I have a colleague who is living alone. He does not have another adult in his home, but we have an order to stay at home,” Nelson says. “My thought process is [that] if he was a person who was sick or quarantined, then how does he cast a ballot if he needs someone basically to vouch for him. So, without trying to or being intentional, I think the process inherently disenfranchises that individual.”
