Voters will be casting their ballots to select candidates for Congressional, state, county and local offices in less than a week. And state and county election officials are working to ensure the voting process is secure. The Wisconsin Elections Commission held an ambitious election security program for county and local election officials in May. That was based on training that WEC staff received at Harvard University. Door County Clerk Jill Lau says she and her staff are confident that local voters won’t have to be concerned with security issues. But Lau adds local elections officials will be taking no chances.
Lau says after the August 14th primary she and her staff will have a security training session to be ready for the November 6th general election.
