In-Person Absentee Voting Starts October 25, Meeting and Event Highlights for the Week of October 24, 2022

October 21, 2022 4:12 PM

IN-PERSON ABSENTEE VOTING STARTS TUESDAY, OCTOBER 25, IN MADISON

In-person absentee voting will begin Tuesday, Oct. 25, at several locations throughout the City of Madison.

What will you need to bring with you if you're voting absentee in person?

  • An acceptable photo ID for voting in Wisconsin.
  • If you need to register for the first time or update your registration because of a move or name change, you will need to bring a proof of residence document with you, too.

Because we have dozens of ballot styles citywide, we use the ExpressVote accessible ballot-marking device for in-person absentee voting.

Voters who have requested an absentee ballot by mail can return their completed absentee ballot to an in-person absentee voting location during the location's voting hours.

At the end of the voting shift for the day, your absentee ballot will be brought to the Clerk's Office in a courier bag with a tamper-evident seal.  The unique serial number on the tamper-evident seal is documented on a chain-of-custody form, as is the number of absentee envelopes sealed in the courier bag.

Voting will take place at the locations listed below.

  • Halloween on State Street: The City of Madison will once again be working to make State Street and downtown Madison a safe and enjoyable space for celebrating Halloween. Events that will be occurring, include:

In the past few years, the City has moved away from a formal/sanctioned event for Halloween, also known as Freakfest, and again there will be no formal event this year. There is also no UW football game or homecoming planned for Halloween weekend this year. To facilitate physical safety, a glass ban has been instituted on State Street for Halloween weekend, and Streateries will be closed at 6:00 p.m.

  • Nurses 4 Black Wellbeing: Research participants are needed for an anonymous survey. The goal of the study is to learn more about the ways wellbeing, physical activity and life stress can affect blood pressure. Participants must racially identify as Black, cultural and ethnic diversity welcomed, age 18 or older, read/speak English, living in the greater Madison area. The research survey takes 20-30 minutes to complete. PPE will be provided. The research survey is one walking test (10-feet), one questionnaire on a laptop computer (with or without assistance), one blood pressure check, and one interview question about inner strength. Research participants receive one $25 Target gift card as a thank you for their time. This is a UW-Madison research survey. There is no connection with any community service. Questions? Concerns? Need additional information? Please contact Dr. Linda Oakley, black.wellbeing.study@nursing.wisc.edu,   608-263-5866.

Announcements

  • City of Madison polling place listing: Several polling locations in the City of Madison have changed since the last election. The City Clerk's Office encourages voters to confirm their polling place before Election Day (November 8). You can look up your polling place address using the MyVote Wisconsin website or go to www.cityofmadison.com/WhereDoIVote. See a list of polling places here.
  • Madison Fire now hiring firefighters/EMTs: For the first time since 2019, the Madison Fire Department is accepting applications for the position of fulltime firefighter/EMT. Becoming a firefighter/EMT is a unique opportunity to make a difference in a person's life – and a direct impact in our community – every single day. No previous fire or EMS experience is necessary to apply. Learn more about this opportunity here.
  • Electric compactors names announced: The Streets Division would like to introduce you to their newly named compactors – Rosie the Rubbisher and Stone Cold Squeeze Often. To learn how the names were picked and see a breakdown of the voting, read the news release.
  • Lake water quality improved this summer: Great news! A lot fewer beaches were closed for swimming this summer. Public Health Madison & Dane County (PHMDC) took a total of 430 water samples this summer from 23 beaches, looking for E. Coli bacteria and blue-green algae, which can make people sick. The total number of beach closures for swimming and recreation was 124, down significantly from last summer's total of 345. There are many factors that contribute to the water quality of our lakes. PHMDC's microbiologist helped explain the role of weather, pollutants, and clean water corridors in an interview on WORT-FM. Take a listen!
