County clerks preparing for busy election season

The county clerks in Door and Kewaunee counties know just as much as you do how much attention Wisconsin’s elections will draw this year. Polling for the Wisconsin governor’s race and the U.S. Senate race has gone back and forth in recent months as ad spending among Democrats, Republicans, and outside groups continue to climb. Add in state Assembly and Senate races and the Southern Door School District referendum, and it could be a busy night for municipalities. Door County Clerk Jill Lau is confident her clerks will be ready as they treat it similarly to a presidential election in terms of the number of ballots they print. She also encourages you to vote early if you do not want to wait in long lines on November 8th.

Some municipalities in Kewaunee County ran out of ballots during the August primary, which traditionally has a lower turnout. Clerk Jamie Annoye says her colleagues considered that when ordering ballots for this election.

Mail-in absentee voting is already underway, but there are several dates you need to keep in mind ahead of the fall election on November 8th. The last day you can register to vote by mail or online is October 19th, though you can always sign up on Election Day. In-person absentee voting begins on October 25th and runs through November 4th, with hours varying by the municipality. Lau reminds voters that it can only be theirs if they drop off a ballot at the clerk’s office.
