Milwaukee closes all early-voting sites; It’s now even more crucial to postpone the election

The City of Milwaukee has closed all three of its early-voting sites. 

This severely limits the ability of voters and has the effect of yet again suppressing the vote.

This makes it more important than ever to postpone the April 7 election.

The City’s announcement on its Election page:

“Effective immediately, the City of Milwaukee will no longer be operating in-person absentee or “early” voting at the city’s three locations:  Zablocki Library, the Zeidler Municipal Building or the Midtown Center.  Due to increased COVID-19 exposure risk, the Election Commission can no longer maintain sufficient staffing levels to operate these sites in a manner that would ensure a safe or efficient public voting experience.”
