*Polls are open from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm on election days.
To request an absentee ballot voters may submit a written request in the form of a letter, a completed absentee application or apply for an absentee ballot online at MyVote.wi.gov. A written request must list the voting address within the municipality where they wish to vote, the address where the absentee ballot should be sent, if different, and the voter’s signature. Voters can submit the application for an absentee ballot in person, by mail, by fax, by email or at MyVote.wi.gov. I’ve attached a copy of the registration application and the absentee ballot application if someone is requesting a blank one be mailed to them.
Important dates to remember:
January 27th- Last day to register by mail or online
January 28th- Begin issuing certificates with in person registrations
February 2nd- In person absentee voting begins 8:00 am to 4:30 pm
February 11th- Last day to request an absentee ballot by mail, open until 5:00 pm
February 12th- Last day to vote in person absentee & last day to register in our office, open until 5:00 pm
A typical General Election involves 30 – 35 Election Officials working to perform voter registration, issuing voter tally numbers, issuing voter ballots, assisting voters throughout the election process, and processing an average of 450 absentee ballots.
During a pandemic it also includes maintaining social distancing and using protective measures, relying on 40 – 45 Election Officials, continually sanitizing voting areas, and limiting the number of voters in the polling area.
Thank you to our residents for your patience and understanding and thank you to all that were able to vote absentee.
Our Election Officials participated in training prior to Election Day, worked longer shifts than anticipated with some working 16 hours, registered over 200 voters, processed almost 2,000 absentee ballots, and manually counted 3,264 ballots after 8:00 p.m.
I struggle to find the words to thank our Election Officials. As with anyone’s work, unless you do it you never truly appreciate what is involved. I can tell you first hand that working an election, especially a General Election – during a pandemic, is a heck of a lot of work.
Hat’s off to all of you! Thank you for all you’ve done.
Former City Clerk, City of Evansville
We are Thankful!
The City of Evansville would like to thank Hayden Latham, Zach Moran and Jayden Dunphy (not pictured) for their generosity and efforts for the 2020 General Election. With the assistance in coordination from Mr. Rob Kostroun, Tech Ed Instructor, these three seniors saw an opportunity to put their skills to good use. As part of their Senior Project these three young men, designed and created all social distancing signs in effort to help protect the health and safety of all voters and polling place workers this election season.
