MENASHA, Wis. (WFRV) – Clerks across Wisconsin are encountering an unprecedented Spring Primary. Menasha City Clerk Deborah Galeazzi, who has been in charge of the community’s election process for 22 years, is among those.

Menasha election officials say they will begin sending the results of today’s vote on Monday, April 13, by 4 p.m.
