Wisconsin state health officials say more than 50 people who either worked at polling places or voted in Wisconsin’s presidential primary earlier this month have tested positive for the coronavirus. Democratic Governor Tony Evers tried to delay voting in the April 7 election, but was overruled by the conservative majority on Wisconsin’s Supreme Court. Wisconsin state Assembly Speaker Robin Vos — who wore a surgical mask, gloves and hospital gown to a polling place — declared the risk of in-person voting was “minimal.” Wisconsin is planning another round of in-person voting on May 12 in a special election to fill a vacant congressional seat.
