ABSENTEE CENTRAL COUNT After the close of polls at 8:00 PM on Election Day, absentee central count municipalities must post the number of absentee ballots that have been issued and returned per Wis. Stat. 7.52(1)(c). In St. Croix County the City of Hudson and the City of River Falls use absentee central count. Unofficial results will be available on election night after the polls close. Results may be incomplete until the counting and reporting of absentee ballots at central count is completed.
