            According to the National Guard, a still to-be-determined number of Citizen Soldiers and Airmen will serve as polling site workers at polling locations across Wisconsin. During this time, the National Guard says administrative and medic personnel are helping to staff three separate voluntary self-isolation facilities in Milwaukee and Madison.

            The National Guard says the Wisconsin Department of Health 火红彩票代理 is managing two of the self-isolation facilities, while a third is being run by the City of Milwaukee and Milwaukee County. According to the National Guard, there are 12 troops assigned at each of the two state-run self-isolation facilities working in shifts to augment staff there, while nearly 30 Wisconsin National Guard personnel are helping staff a Milwaukee-run facility.

            “We are Citizen Soldiers and Airmen who live and work in these same communities,” Major General Paul Knapp, Wisconsin’s adjutant general said. “We are neighbors helping neighbors, and our Soldiers and Airmen span every community in Wisconsin. Clerks and elections officials are having a hard time finding volunteers to work at the polls so our democratic process can play out, and we’re honored to assist and help ease some of the staffing needs.”

            Knapp also urged Wisconsin residents to vote absentee in the April 7 election. Absentee ballots can be requested until 5 p.m. Thursday, April 2 or in writing, e-mail, or fax
