(Beaver Dam) Officials in Beaver Dam are exploring the possibility of mailing absentee ballot applications to city residences. Alderwoman Jaci Shelton asked for the item to be added to the Administrative Committee agenda after being contacted by a city taxpayer who had heard about other communities doing the same thing. Shelton emphasized that the mailing would be for applications for absentee ballots and not the ballots themselves. The committee agreed by consensus to have officials explore the costs of sending the applications to either every registered voter or every household in the city. The matter is expected to be on the agenda for consideration in mid-June.
