Election News Regarding Coronavirus

Keeping residents and our staff safe is a top priority, so we wanted to share the steps we are taking in response to coronavirus. We are developing preventive measures to maintain a clean, healthy environment in City Hall for absentee voting.

  1. First and foremost, we have ramped up cleaning efforts.  City Hall is cleaned daily, with sanitizing solutions used in high-touch, high-traffic areas.  We also have staff dedicated to cleaning key areas throughout the day.
  2. We have set up an In-Person Absentee Voting Area with the following precautions:
    • Hand sanitizer will be available upon entering the building.
    • There is room for 22 people to stand in line at least 6 feet from each other.
    • Voters will be asked to show photo ID, but asked not to hand it to staff.
    • There are four (4) voting booths set up at least 6 feet from each other.
    • Voting booths will be cleaned between users.
    • Pens will be cleaned between users.
    • Envelopes will be sealed with glue sticks.
  3. We have asked staff who are not feeling well to refrain from coming in.
  4. Finally, we want to remind you that you can request an absentee ballot be mailed to you.  You can request an absentee ballot at myvote.wi.gov  We believe this to be the safest option for everyone involved, so please consider voting absentee.
