The August 11th 2020 election is a “Partisan Primary”.  The Partisan Primary has been around since 1906. In a Partisan Primary you may vote in only one political party’s primary.  To ensure your votes count, on the left side of the ballot you may select the Political Party’s Primary you wish to vote in.  If you select the party and accidentally vote in another party’s column, the votes in the party you selected will be counted and the votes in the other party will not be counted.

Should you choose to not select a party in the left column, and you vote in more then one party, none of your votes will count.  Basically, vote in only one party on this ballot.

Before you put your ballot in the mail, did you remember…

  • On your return envelope be sure to sign and date in Box 3. This is highlighted in yellow.
  • In Box 4, ensure you have a witness sign and place their address in this box. This is highlighted in yellow. Your spouse may be your witness.

If you forget either of these signatures and address, your ballot will not be counted.  I want to ensure all ballots count.  Should you have questions please feel free to contact me.

Thank you,

Tim Tollefson
