City of Milwaukee racing to get absentee ballots to voters

NOW: City of Milwaukee racing to get absentee ballots to voters

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- More than 100 elections workers in the City of Milwaukee are racing against the clock to get absentee ballots to voters. 

"We regret there was some delay in issuing absentee ballots," said Wisconsin Election Commission Executive Director Neil Albrecht. "We actually, like many municipalities across the state, ran out of supplies. We had anticipated that we would get envelopes in time to prevent a slowdown of operations, but our printer ran two days behind schedule."

Officials say workers are hand-stuffing envelopes to keep up with demand.

The city is receiving five to 6,000 absentee ballot requests per day.

You don't have to mail your absentee ballot in. 

There are drop boxes throughout the city.

They are open every day from 8 a.m. - 1 p.m.
