Clerks Advised to Continue Preparations for Tomorrow's Election

April 6, 2020 4:23 PM

Hello Neighbors,

The communication below from the Wisconsin Election Commission to Clerks indicates that whether tomorrow's election takes place or not is still up in the air. It is possible that the State Supreme Court could overturn Gov. Evers' postponement order and/or that the State Legislature could take further action, but all of that is to be determined. Stay tuned before abandoning your voting plans.

If the election is tomorrow and whether going to the polls or absentee voting, here are Twelve Things for Voters to Know on Election Day.

----------------------

Municipal and County Clerk Partners

The Governor just issued an executive order delaying in-person voting for the April 7, 2020 election until June 9.   While the Governor has called for moving the election, we can be certain there will be very fast moving litigation.  The order is at the link and in the text below. 

Therefore, we must continue to making preparation in earnest for tomorrow.  If the election is moved to the 9th we will adjust accordingly, but all we can do today is prepare for tomorrow.  As additional details come to our attention, we will share them with you.  

I know too much has already been asked of you, but we ask you to proceed with your Election Day preparations as we do not know the outcome of any possible litigation and we need to be prepared if the election is held tomorrow.  

Our state is so incredibly lucky to have each and everyone of you.  Thank you for your continued public service and we will let you know if there are any additional developments.
