MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers said Monday that he’s considering allowing people to vote in Wisconsin’s spring election only by mail in order to protect voters and poll workers from the coronavirus.

The April 7 election includes the state’s presidential primary, a state Supreme Court race and hundreds of races for local office. Several states have postponed their presidential primaries to prevent people from congregating at the polls and spreading the virus, but Evers has thus far insisted that Wisconsin’s take place as scheduled and has been urging people to vote by mailing in absentee ballots to avoid the polls.
