You can bring your photo identification to your local municipal office to cast your ballot beginning Tuesday. The early voting period runs until April 1st, just a few days before the April 5th spring election. The spring election will feature races for boards representing the county, school districts, villages, towns, cities, and more. Sister Bay Village Clerk Heidi Teich says the number of requests for absentee ballots is down from previous years, adding she is looking forward to seeing some voters she has not seen in a while.
You can still go online to request an absentee ballot if you cannot make it to a polling place on or before Election Day. However, in February, a Wisconsin Supreme Court decision did ban the use of unmanned drop boxes for the April 5th election. Teich joined Sturgeon Bay City Clerk Stephanie Reinhardt, Sevastopol Town Clerk Amy Flok, Door County Clerk Jill Lau, and First District Rep. Joel Kitchens for a public awareness event about the security and integrity of elections in the area.
