On Tuesday, Trump tweeted a flurry of accusations, including falsely claiming that California was sending ballots to undocumented immigrants and was prepared to let "anyone", regardless of residency, vote by mail.

Wisconsin joins the ranks of MI and CT, which already chose to send general election ballot applications to voters.

Hollis said voters' desire to cast their ballots from the safe social distance of their mailbox combined with coronavirus restrictions limiting the number of election staffers has overwhelmed the county's elections office.
