Thousands of absentee ballots in Wisconsin weren’t counted because of mailing problems and tech glitches

MADISON – Nearly 2,700 absentee ballots in Milwaukee were not sent and about 1,600 in the Fox Valley were not processed because of computer glitches and mailing problems, according to the most comprehensive account yet of what went wrong in the April 7 election.

In Milwaukee, 2,693 voters were not sent absentee ballots after technical issues marred their production on March 22 and March 23, according to a report by the Wisconsin Elections Commission.

About half of those people eventually voted, either with replacement absentee ballots or at the polls. The others did not vote.
