MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin officials are working on new tracking technology for absentee ballots and considering a host of other changes to improve the state's vote-by-mail process ahead of the November presidential election, according to a new report.

Wisconsin has been at the center of the fight over elections during the coronavirus pandemic after going ahead with its April 7 presidential primary even as other states postponed theirs because of the risk of spreading the disease. Voters overwhelmed local clerks with a record number of absentee ballot requests, but many complained that they never received one and postal workers failed to properly manage ballots sent to Fox Valley voters.
