If you did not receive your absentee ballot to vote in the city of Milwaukee, Election Commissioner Neil Albrecht says you will have to go to one of the five polling places in the city to cast your vote, and he says some people are choosing not to vote for fear of their safety.

"We have moved forward with an election, but not with democracy in Wisconsin," Albrecht said.

Albrecht says his office has fielded hundreds of calls from voters who applied for an absentee ballot but did not receive one.

He says his staff has heard from voters who have not missed an election for 40 years, but will not be able to cast a vote this year, fearing for their health if they were to vote in person.

If you did receive your absentee ballot, you need to submit it to a drop off center by 8 p.m. tonight in order to be counted.

If you received your absentee ballot and mailed or dropped it off, you cannot vote at the in person polling locations.
