April 7th Election with Regard to COVID-19
Because of COVID-19, voters in the Town of Lomira are urged to act now to vote absentee for the April 7 Spring Election and Presidential Preference Primary.
Polls will be open in the Town of Lomira on Election Day, but most voters might want to vote absentee for this election. For that to happen, you should request an absentee ballot as soon as possible.
How to Request an Absentee Ballot
There are several ways registered voters can request absentee ballots. If they have internet access, the easiest way is to sign up at MyVote Wisconsin, https://myvote.wi.gov.
Just look for the “Vote Absentee” button near the top of the page. On a mobile phone, use the menu button in the upper right corner of the website. There is a three-step process that starts with putting in your name and date of birth, followed by requesting your ballot. If you don’t already have a photo ID on file with your clerk’s office, you can upload a copy. Mobile phone users can take a picture and upload it to MyVote. Absentee ballot requests submitted this way go directly to your clerk’s office, and you can track your ballot by returning to the website.
Voters can also request absentee ballots by mailing or emailing their municipal clerk’s office. These requests must be accompanied by a copy of your photo ID. If you already have a photo ID on file from previous absentee requests under your current registration, you will not need to provide it again.
Voters who are indefinitely confined, meaning they may have difficulty getting to the polls for reason of age, illness, infirmity, or disability are not required to provide a photo ID. More information on photo ID and exemptions can be found at bringit.wi.gov.
The deadline for registered voters to request an absentee ballot be mailed to you is the Thursday before the election, April 2. However, voters are urged not to wait, due to possible delays in mail delivery.
Your absentee ballot must be received in your clerk’s office (drop box available at N10482 Center Drive, Lomira) or at your polling place (Lomira Town Hall) by 8 p.m. on Election Day. Voters should request and return ballots as soon as possible.
Voters must be registered to receive an absentee ballot
Voters may register online and by mail until March 30th. They may also register in the clerk’s office until Thursday, April 2nd and vote absentee in person by appointment until the Friday before the election, April 3rd.
Please bring proof of residence for voter registration and proof of identification for in-person voting. Appointments can be made with the clerk for voter registration or in-person absentee voting by calling 920-948-3493.
