Voting Update 4/6/20

April 6, 2020 8:17 PM

Today's state and federal judicial actions are reminder why the upcoming election for Wisconsin Supreme Court is so important for Wisconsin and the entire country.  Two levels of the Court overruled the Governor's actions to delay the April 7 election.

In addition to Wisconsin's Supreme Court overturning the governor's order to postpone tomorrow's election until June, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled this evening that Wisconsin cannot accept absentee ballots postmarked after Tuesday. https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/491466-supreme-court-blocks-wisconsin-from-extending-absentee-voting?link_id=0&can_id=e75b8a75638a8ebd2ea19b9f7b58bfde&source=email-another-body-blow&email_referrer=email_770014&email_subject=another-body-blow

This afternoon, the Wisconsin Supreme Court overturned Gov. Tony Evers executive order suspending in-person voting for the April 7 spring election, allowing tomorrow's election to move forward. The 4-2 ruling did not give details about the court's reasoning for its decision but said a more comprehensive opinion will follow.

Gov. Tony Evers this afternoon signed Executive Order 74 to delay tomorrow's election until June due to concerns about the COVID-19 outbreak, but Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau) and Assembly Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) immediately filed a challenge to the order.

See the ruling here.

Meagan Wolfe, administrator of the Wisconsin Elections Commission, sent out the following email to municipal and county clerks immediately following the Wisconsin Supreme Court decision:

"The WI Supreme Court has ruled that tomorrow's election is to proceed as planned. There will be an election tomorrow April 7, 2020 and the polls are to be open from 7am-8pm. We have provided additional guidance at https://elections.wi.gov/index.php/clerks/recent-communications including guidance on election night processing https://elections.wi.gov/node/6819. Thank you all for everything you are doing to prepare for tomorrow's election day."

You can still return a completed absentee ballot (make sure you have a witness to sign for it) by noon on April 7th to Pinney, Sequoya or Central libraries.

Need a witness? Call the Dane County Voter ID Coalition hotline at 608-285-2141. If not possible, write a statement to that effect on the absentee envelope.

Madison will allow curbside voting tomorrow for voters who have underlying health conditions, are at high risk for COVID-19, or may have been exposed to someone with COVID-19. When you pull up to the curb of the polling place, you will see a sign posted with a number to call in order to reach the poll workers inside.

Voters will not need to remove their Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Poll workers have been instructed to verify the identity of a voter wearing a facemask by comparing the eyes in the voter's ID to the eyes of the voter before them. Poll workers should not ask voters to remove their facemasks.

Voters who have not returned an absentee ballot may vote at the polls. Voters who received an absentee ballot but have not sent that ballot back to the Clerk's Office have the option of voting at the polls on Election Day instead. Voters who have returned their absentee ballot to be counted may not vote at the polls on Election Day.

Do not hesitate to contact the Clerk's Office. If you have a question or encounter a problem at your polling place, please let them know right away by calling (608) 266-4601.

All of District 6 polling places are in their normal locations.
