November Election Information
Absentee Ballots for everyone that is in the system by September 17th will be mailed out on September 17th. That is when the first batch will be mailed out. As of 09-02-20 I have just about 600 absentee ballot requests in the system. I am expecting between 1000 and 1200 absentee ballots will be mailed out. Please don’t wait till the last minute to request your absentee ballot. In-Person absentee voting will start on October 20th. Hours will be from 1pm to 5pm Monday through Friday. The last day to vote in-person absentee will be Friday October 30th at 5pm. If those hours do not work for your please call my office and I will make arrangements for voting a different time.
Absentee Ballot Info
If you are looking for an application for an absentee ballot, there are several ways to get a copy of the application.
1. at the bottom of this note there is a link for a copy. Fill that out, make a copy of your ID and either Email it to [email protected] or mail to 5818 N Kennedy Road, Milton WI 53563. You may also drop off at the Town Hall.
2. Go to www.myvote.wi.gov and request an absentee ballot. You may have to download a picture of your ID. This process takes less than 5 minutes.
Don’t wait till the last minute to request a ballot. Request yours today.
Absentee Ballot Returns
Absentee ballots must be at the Town Hall by 8pm election day. Ballots returned to me after 8pm will not be counted. If you mail the ballot back after the Thursday before the election it may not arrive in time to be counted. You have options for returning your ballot. We have had very few problems with the postal system but you need to mail your ballot back early.
1. Mail it back
2. Drop it off at the Town Hall. If I am not here, you can slide it under the door where my mail is delivered. The office building is open from 7am to 5pm Monday through Friday.
3. There is a drop box at my house. It is located at the bottom of my driveway next to the gate of the entrance to my downstairs. This box is under 24-hour surveillance and that is why I chose to put it there. Putting a drop box at the Town Hall concerned me as there is no surveillance. Please do not drop your ballot in my mailbox. That is actually against the law.
For all those people who signup to receive an absentee ballot before mid-September, the first ballots will be mailed on or around September 17th. If you plan to vote “in-person absentee” that will not start till October 20th.
Election Day Voting
The November Election will be a busy election. At this time, I have to assume that the Covid virus will still be around so we are planning to run the in-person voting the same way we did in April and August. For the safety of everyone, we have to limit the number of people in the Town Hall and in the hallway to the Town Hall. That means there may be wait lines outside the building. I will post more info on our website as the election gets closer.
