Dodge County Clerk Urges Absentee Voters, Witnesses To Be Thorough

(Juneau) Local elections officials are reminding voters to cross their “T’s” and dot their “I’s” when filling out absentee ballots. Dodge County Clerk Karen Gibson says it is very important for voters who are voting absentee to be sure to complete the absentee ballot envelope currently. She urges people to read the envelope carefully and make sure they have a witness who saw them put the ballot into the envelope.

Gibson says the witness observing the absentee ballot process also has to be thorough. That means signing the envelope and including their complete address with street name and number, city, state and zip code. If the witness does not provide all of their information as well, the ballot may not count.

A photo ID must accompany absentee ballot request forms returned to the municipal clerk. Voters can visit the my-vote website to check their voter status, register to vote, and request an absentee ballot for the fall election. The partisan primary will be held on August 9th with the general election being held on November 8th. A link to the my-vote site is available at DailyDodge.com. https://myvote.wi.gov/en-us/
