Evers has so far resisted calls to postpone the April 7 election, saying he wants people to vote by absentee ballot rather than travel to the polls.

He told reporters during a conference call Monday that he's evaluating whether to conduct the election completely by mail-in absentee ballots.

The election includes a presidential primary, a state Supreme Court race and hundreds of local contests.
