Spring Election and Presidential Preference Vote-April 7, 2020

As of today, the Spring Election and Presidential Preference Vote on April 7, 2020, will take place as scheduled.  Please watch the local news channels for any updates.

The Wisconsin Elections Commission strongly recommends that anyone planning to vote should request to have an absentee ballot mailed to them as soon as possible.

  • You must be registered to vote to request an absentee ballot. 
  • The deadline to register by mail to vote has passed.
  • The deadline to register online to vote has been extended by federal court order until March 30. The WEC is working to reinstate online registration in the next few days.  The website is https://myvote.wi.gov. 
  • Voters who need to register may also do so in person at their municipal clerk’s office until the Friday before the election at 5:00 pm and on Election Day at the polling place.
  • Voters should request an absentee ballot as soon as possible for April 7. The deadline is April 2, but DO NOT WAIT!
  • Request your absentee ballot online at https://myvote.wi.gov
  • You may also send a letter or email to the clerk, [email protected], stating your name, address and where you want the ballot sent.  Please include a copy of Photo ID, such as a copy of your Drivers License.

In-person absentee voting is available.  It is by appointment only as I have voters meet at the Potter Village Hall instead of my house where the Town’s office is located.  Please email [email protected] or call 920-588-7013 to set up an appointment.  If you don’t reach me, please leave a message and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

You are welcome to come to the polls on Election Day.  We are working on steps to keep you and our poll workers safe as you vote.  If you have any questions, please email [email protected] or call 920-588-7013.
