Wisconsin Governor Signs Executive Order To Postpone Primary Election

Democratic Gov.

Tony Evers issued an executive order about postponing Wisconsin’s primary election.

According to Reuters, he wants to move the election from April 7 to June 9.

Evers cited health risks as the reason but Republicans said they would challenge it in the state Supreme Court.

Evers tried to cancel in-person voting and extend the time to return absentee ballots into late May.

Republicans rejected that proposal and Evers then moved forward with his executive order.
