Clerk's Office Encourages Voters to Verify Registration
In response to Friday's court ruling regarding the inactivation of voter registrations, the Madison City Clerk's Office strongly encourages voters to verify their registration status.
Voters with online access may verify their registration by visiting MyVote.wi.gov. Toward the top of the webpage, they may select "Search by Name" or "My Voter Info" to search for their voter registration. The website will prompt the voter to enter their name and date of birth.
Once the voter's registration information appears on the screen, the voter should look for a status of "You are Registered to Vote!" and should verify that the current address listed is accurate. If the voter sees a green button that says, "Click Here to Confirm Your Address," that means the voter was included in the mailing the Elections Commission recently sent to all voters it believed may have moved. It is imperative that these voters click the green button to confirm their address, if accurate, or click the gray "Update Address" button to update their voter registration online.
Voters without access to the internet are encouraged to contact the City Clerk's Office to verify their voter registration status.

Madison Fire Makes Switch to PFA-free Foam
Image from the City of Madison Fire Department Facebook page
The Madison Fire Department has acquired and placed into service a brand of firefighting foam shown to be PFA-free, according to manufacturer claims and an independent test of the product.
Effective December 13, 2019, all Madison Fire Department rigs were equipped with National Foam brand's Knockdown Class A Foam Concentrate. This foam was independently tested by the University Of Notre Dame to verify the fluorine levels in the product. Results of the test showed fluorine levels at 1 ppm with a margin of error of 6 ppm. Fluorinated firefighting foam products typically contain around 5,000-7,000 ppm total fluorine.
Knockdown Class A Foam Concentrate was chosen following internal functional testing of multiple products marketed as PFA-free. In addition to its extremely low concentration of fluorine, it was selected by the Madison Fire Department for its ability to perform effectively in a wide range of temperatures, which is especially important during Wisconsin's frigid winter months.
The Madison Fire Department has contracted with a licensed disposal company to responsibly dispose of the fluorinated foam that was previously used by the department. This switch allows the Madison Fire Department to effectively fight fires while potentially reducing the risk of environmental contamination brought forth by PFAs.
The Madison Fire Department shares the community's concerns about the health and cleanliness of the environment. They recognize that the test results cited above are according to today's testing standards. They will continue to monitor this product as industry standards change and testing methods evolve.
