WISCONSIN — Check election results here once they begin coming in at 4:00 p.m.

Election results from the April 7 spring election will begin to be released at 4 p.m. on Monday, April 13.

The Wisconsin Elections Commission said that though the election continued as scheduled on April 7, despite efforts from Gov. Tony Evers to postpone the election because of COVID-19 concerns, there wouldn't be a public release of the results until votes were totaled on April 13 after a previously extended absentee voting deadline.

U.S. District Judge William Conley rejected lawsuits seeking to postpone the election, but gave voters until April 13 to return absentee ballots.

The Supreme Court blocked the plan to extend absentee voting, meaning that those with absentee ballots had to turn them in or be postmarked April 7 in order to be counted. Though absentee voting was not extended, the Wisconsin Election Commission said that elections results were still restricted until April 13.

There were several reports of irregularities in residents receiving their absentee ballots in time for the election, prompting a USPS investigation.

Votes will be tallied at the municipal board of canvassers meeting on April 13.
