Election Day Grows Closer – In Person Absentee Voting Ends Today for Most Communities
The countdown to the Spring Election is in its final days – as voters will head to the polls on Tuesday to cast their ballots for a number of different races. The polls are open 7 am until 8 pm on Tuesday – and County Clerk Lisa Freiberg says, if you’re in line at 8 pm, you will be allowed to vote. “You have to be at the polling place by 8 pm. If there is a line, you will get to vote. If you walk in at 8:01 or 8:02, you do not vote, so please plan accordingly that you are there by 8 pm,” Freiberg said. If you can’t make it to the polls on election day – Freiberg says your opportunity to do in-person absentee voting is ending today at 5 pm. “All three of our cities in the county – Fond du Lac, Ripon and Waupun – will be open until 5 o’clock, most of our villages will be open until five, and all the towns have to be available until 5 pm because our towns don’t have set hours,” Freiberg said. She adds that some of the towns do offer absentee voting on Saturday as well. Freiberg says to contact your Municipal Clerk with questions about absentee voting hours. In all cases, you will need a valid photo ID to vote. For more information, including a sample ballot – visit MyVote Wisconsin.
