It’s already been a hectic leadup to next Tuesday’s election for Oneida County Clerk Tracy Hartman.
In April 2016, the last election with a Supreme Court race and presidential primary, 1,400 voters in Oneida County requested absentee ballots.
This year’s number is about three times that.
“It’s a challenge,” Hartman said Monday. “It has become overwhelming.”
Then, last Friday, a message from Madison overwhelmed Hartman even more.
