The mayors of Wisconsin’s five largest cities said Monday they'll receive $6.3 million from the nonpartisan Center for Tech and Civic Life to help with elections in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The funding will help support an adequate number of voting sites, set up drive-thru and dropbox locations, provide personal protective equipment for poll workers and recruit and train a sufficient number of workers.
The cities applied for the funding, which has been approved in full by the center but may still require approval from city councils.
Cities set to receive funding and the amount of money are:
- Milwaukee: $2,154,500
- Madison: $1,271,788
- Green Bay: $1,093,400
- Racine: $942,100
- Kenosha: $862,779
