Alder Paulson’s Updates

Updates for voting in the April 7 election

March 27, 2020 10:14 AM

Register to vote and request an absentee ballot

You can register to vote until March 30 at My Vote Wisconsin. Once you are registered, you can request an absentee ballot by mail online at My Vote Wisconsin or by sending an email to Please include your name, address at which you are registered to vote, email address to which the ballot should be sent, and a copy or picture of your voter ID (if not already on file in the Clerk's Office). The deadline to request an absentee ballot is 5 pm the Thursday before the election.

Curbside voter registration and absentee voting

Curbside voter registration and absentee voting are now available through April 3 to all residents. Curbside voting is open from 8 am-6 pm outside of 210 Martin Luther King Jr Blvd.

Due to COVID-19 precautions for the April 2020 Election, the City of Madison has reserved parking meters on the 200 block of Martin Luther King, Jr., Blvd for any City of Madison voter to register and/or vote from the curb. Just pull up to a parking meter in front of the City-County Building or Madison Municipal Building with a "No Parking - Police Order sign." If you have a cell phone, you can call the number posted on the sign at the meter to begin the curbside voting process. Otherwise, wave at one of their election officials standing in front of the building, wearing a bright yellow vest. Two officials will bring your ballot to your vehicle and will check your voter ID at your vehicle. If you have your own pen to use, wave it at the officials as they approach your vehicle.  Note, they are sanitizing clipboards and pens after each use.

If you had the Clerk's Office mail you an absentee ballot, and you need a witness, you may use the curbside voting process for that purpose.

Sign up to be a poll worker

The City of Madison is in dire need of hundreds of poll workers for the April 7 election. To become a poll worker, sign up on the City of Madison Clerk's website.
