Wisconsin's primary elections will take place on Tuesday as scheduled, according to ABC News. The report coming as officials raised questions and concerns amid the coronavirus pandemic.

ABC News says both campaigns for former Vice President Joe Biden and President Donald Trump will not call on the state to postpone their respective contests.

U.S. District Judge William Conley ruled on Thursday that in-person voting would not be canceled or postponed, but voters in Wisconsin now have an additional day to request an absentee ballot, until Saturday at 5 p.m., ABC News reported.

Voters will now have an additional six days to get their absentee ballots to election officials.
