Yes, you can change your vote — but not for much longer

MADISON — Google searches for “can I change my vote” have surged in recent days, according to The Gateway Pundit and other news outlets. 

Wisconsin ranked in the top 10 for the search category, the Gateway Pundit reported. 

If you’re having a candidate change of heart, there is time to change your vote in Wisconsin — but the clock is ticking. 

“Voters who have returned an absentee ballot have until 5 p.m. Thursday [Oct.29]  to request that the clerk spoil their ballot and issue them a new one,” Wisconsin Elections Commission spokesman Reid Magney wrote Monday in an email response to Empower Wisconsin. “They can do this in writing (and have the clerk mail them a new one) or in person (and vote in the clerk’s office).  

Time is running out for voters to ask for another ballot to be mailed to them. 

“A voter could also make a written request by the deadline for their absentee ballot to be spoiled, after which the voter could go in person to the clerk’s office or a satellite voting location during times that service is offered, or to the polling place on election day,” Magney said. 

Wisconsin is reportedly among seven states that allows voters to “spoil” their vote within the early voting window, and cast another ballot. 

Early voting, according to Politico, has favored Democrat candidates thus far. A new poll from the Elections Research Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison found that 73 percent of those who already voted supported Democratic Party candidate Joe Biden, compared to 26 percent who supported President Donald Trump. Election Day voting is expected to heavily favor Trump and the Republicans, grassroots vote trackers say. 

Gateway Pundit reports the spike in the Google search term “can I change my vote”  followed the latest allegations of foreign influence peddling by Biden’s son, Hunter, and the former vice president, as well as more salacious video allegedly involving Hunter.
