The state’s voter ID law did force some Wisconsin residents to cast provisional ballots in last Tuesday’s presidential election.
Municipal clerks around the state say at least 590 provisional ballots were cast on Election Day because the voter did not present an acceptable photo ID at the polls. The number could grow, as more clerks report numbers election officials this week. Only about half of the state’s municipalities have said whether they issued any provisional ballots last week.
Voters who cast a provisional ballot had until Friday to resolve any issues that would allow it to be counted. So far, the Wisconsin Election Commission only knows about 67 provisional ballots that were counted and four that were rejected by the deadline.
