April Absentee Voters May Be Listed Absentee On November Poll Books

(Juneau) Dodge County Clerk Karen Gibson says a lot of people requested absentee ballots for the April election not realizing that they would get absentee ballots for the whole year. Gibson says under that scenario, the law still allows you to vote in person if you wish but the poll book will have you listed as an absentee voter. To avoid confusion, she suggests writing a letter to her office or your local municipal clerk clarifying that you do not wish to vote absentee in the November election. Once you return an absentee ballot you have voted, and Gibson warns not to vote again on election day.  Not everyone who voted absentee in April will be getting a ballot for November, only those who signed up for the whole year or registered as indefinitely confined.
