1) “I’m disgusted. I requested an absentee ballot almost three weeks ago and never got it. I have a father dying from lung disease and I have to risk my life and his just to exercise my right to vote,” said Milwaukee resident Jennifer Taff (holding sign).  She had been standing in line at Washington High School for almost two hours.

10) People wait in a long line to vote in the Democratic presidential-primary election outside the Hamilton High School in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on April 7, 2020. Citizens in Wisconsin cast ballots Tuesday in a controversial election held despite a state-wide stay-at-home order and concern that the election could expose thousands of voters and poll workers to the coronavirus. Democratic officials had sought to postpone the election but were overruled by the top state court, and the U.S. Supreme Court stepped in to bar an extension of voting by mail that would have allowed more people to cast ballots without going to polling stations.
