U.S. Senators Tammy Baldwin and Ron Johnson are calling for an investigation into missing absentee ballots in Wisconsin.
Democrat Baldwin and Republican Johnson each cited a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report from Wednesday about missing absentee ballots, including three tubs of them from Oshkosh and Appleton discovered in a mail processing center.
It wasn’t immediately clear whether the ballots were being sent to voters, or if they’d been completed and being returned to local clerks. Under a court order ballots won’t be counted unless they were postmarked by Election Day.
The Milwaukee Election Commission has also called for an investigation into a separate set of undelivered ballots. Problems were also reported in in the Village of Fox Point, where many ballots were returned as undeliverable to the clerk’s office.
