September Office Hours & Democracy in the Park Event Planned for September 26 & October 3

August 31, 2020 5:38 PM

I will be hosting office hours in September virtually on Monday, September 14th in the afternoon and Wednesday, September 23th in the morning. I will be using Zoom (with video).

Note: I have set it up so I can only meet one person at a time. If I'm meeting with someone else, there will be a small waiting period in a meeting lobby. If you don't want to use Zoom, I will be answering calls (608-912-0000) during this time as long as I'm not speaking with someone else.

Democracy in the Park Event Planned for September 26 & October 3

If you aren't one of the 70,000 people who have already requested an absentee ballot for November, you can do so at The Clerk's Office is working on multiple ways, besides via mail, of dropping off your ballot. I'm excited about the new option detailed below. I've signed up to help at one of the locations.

Over 70,000 City of Madison residents have absentee ballot requests on file for the November 3 General Election. Ballots will be mailed by September 17.

Many City of Madison voters have been contacting the City Clerk's Office to ask about options for returning their absentee ballots in person.  In response to these questions, the Clerk's Office is partnering with the City of Madison Parks Division to allow City of Madison voters to return their absentee ballots to poll workers stationed in more than 200 City of Madison parks.

The Democracy in the Park event will be held 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM, Saturday, September 26 and Saturday, October 3.  In the case of inclement weather, the event will be held Sunday, September 27 and Sunday, October 4 instead.

Poll workers wearing high visibility vests and face masks will be available next to a "Vote" yard sign in 206 city parks to register voters and to accept the delivery of absentee ballots.  The poll workers will be available to serve as a witness, if needed.

Poll workers will practice social distancing and will sanitize materials after each use.  When the event ends at 3:00 PM, an election official courier will bring the ballots back to the Clerk's Office.  The courier and the poll workers on-site will count the number of absentee ballots being returned to the Clerk's Office, and will seal them in a delivery package with a tamper evident seal that has a unique serial number.  The number of ballots and the seal number will be documented on a chain-of-custody form that will be signed by the poll workers in the park and by the courier.

Ballots will be taken directly to the City Clerk's Office where seal numbers and the number of absentee ballots delivered will be verified by Clerk's Office staff.

Additional ballot drop-off locations will be announced as locations, dates, and times are confirmed.

The following parks will be part of Democracy in the Park:
