Get Ready to Vote November 3!

NOW is a good time to register to vote.
And/or request your absentee ballot.

Yes, we just had the fall primary election, but the November 3 election is coming up fast.
The US Postal Service is experiencing delays, so if you plan to vote by mail, request your absentee ballot NOW, and when you receive it, return it ASAP. Some municipalities may also use secure ballot drop boxes, so keep an eye on your local clerk’s office for information in the coming weeks. The city of Madison just announced it will install 14 secure ballot drop boxes.
