Here's what you need to know about today's election.
Gov. Tony Evers used an executive order to attempt to move in-person voting into June, in order to keep people safe during the pandemic. The State Supreme Court overturned the order, saying the governor did not have that authority. to do that. Later last night, the US Supreme Court overturned a measure that would have allowed absentee ballots to be accepted through April 13th.
So what does this mean?
If you haven't sent in your absentee ballot you need to drop it off at your polling place TODAY. If you mail it in, it must be postmarked no later than today's date. So don't drop it in the mail today--because all our mail is sent to Milwaukee first, it is very unlikely it will be postmarked with today's date.
If you requested an absentee ballot but did not receive it, you must vote in person at your polling place. Until noon today, ballots may be dropped off at the Central Library, 201 W. Mifflin St. (Mifflin St. book drop only), Pinney Library, 516 Cottage Grove Road (drive through book drop only), and Sequoya Library, 4340 Tokay Blvd.
You may bring your own black or blue ballpoint pen and use it to vote.
