MADISON, Wis. (AP) — More than 50 people who voted in person or worked the polls during Wisconsin's election earlier this month have tested positive for COVID-19 so far.

But there are no plans to move or otherwise alter a special congressional election coming in less than two weeks.

The state Department of Health Services reported the latest figures on Tuesday, three weeks after the April 7 presidential primary.

Democratic Gov. Tony Evers tried to move to a mail-order election but was blocked by the Republican Legislature and conservative controlled Wisconsin Supreme Court.

He's made no such move to alter an upcoming May 12 special congressional election in a mostly rural district.
