Tuesday on Lake Effect: Milwaukee Ballot Counting, Interpreting The Constitution, COVID-19 Response

Tuesday on Lake Effect

Milwaukee County’s elections director explains the ballot counting process and when we can expect results. Then, we talk to a political science professor about how little the Constitution has to say about the unique situation the 2020 election has presented. Plus, we learn how the Milwaukee Health Department became the first in the nation to recognize the radical, racial disparity in COVID-19 deaths.


  • Julietta Henry, Milwaukee County elections director
  • Paul Nolette, professor of political science at Marquette University
  • Lilliann Paine, chief of staff for the Milwaukee Health Department
