Recently, Governor Evers directed the State Department of Health Services to cease dine-in restaurant operations statewide. Many local restaurants and bars are still providing delivery and take out services. 

The Wisconsin Restaurant Association has compiled, and is continually updating this list of local restaurants accepting orders. Please support local business during this trying time!

 Vote by mail this April! Request an Absentee Ballot today!

The Wisconsin Election Commission is encouraging absentee voting due to COVID-19.  For more information, go to: https://elections.wi.gov/node/6719

There are several ways registered voters can request absentee ballots. If you have internet access, the easiest way is to sign up at MyVoteWisconsin, 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, emailing or faxing their municipal clerk’s office. You can find your clerk’s contact information on MyVote Wisconsin. 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.  Voters in care facilities can have a representative of the facility confirm the resident's identity instead of providing 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 by mail is April 2, 2020 - this is the last day a clerk can mail a ballot to you. However, the WEC urges voters not to wait, sign up for an absentee ballot as soon as possible! 

In person absentee ballot requests, voter registration or registration changes can be made at your local municipal clerk's office until April 3rd, 2020
