Voters Urged to Check Their Registration Now for November General Election | 09/27/2016

Voters Urged to Check Their Registration Now for November General Election
 
With the election just weeks away, we urge you to make sure you are properly registered for the November 8 General Election.
 
Please take a few minutes to go online to the state’s MyVote.WI.gov website. You can make sure you are registered to vote at your current address and find where to go on Election Day. You can also view a sample ballot from the site.
 
If you don’t have Internet access, contact the Clerk’s office at (920) 989-1062 or jweyenberg@harrison-wi.org and we will be happy to help you.
 
Keep in mind that Wednesday, October 19 is the deadline to register to vote by mail, including the voter registration form you get when you use MyVote Wisconsin. All mail-in voter registration applications must be postmarked by October 19.  Starting on October 20, all voter registrations must be in the clerk’s office or at the polling place on Election Day.
 
Every voter registration must be accompanied by a document for proof of residence. This can be a driver license or state ID with a current address, a recent utility bill or bank statement, or a lease or property tax bill. A complete list of proof-of-residence documents is available online: http://gab.wi.gov/publications/voter-guides/proof-of-residence.
 

Beware of Election-Related Mailings | 09/26/2016

With the fall elections just around the corner, political groups will be stepping up their efforts to get citizens registered to vote and/or absentee voting. While the effort is commendable the information they send is often misleading or incomplete. It is not uncommon for these groups to mail out postcards, voter registration forms, or absentee ballot applications with our return address pre-printed on it. Instructions often direct you to “just sign your name and drop in the mail.” PLEASE LOOK AT THESE FORMS VERY CLOSELY. Proof of Residency is required to be submitted along with a voter registration. Proof of Identification (aka Photo ID) is required when requesting an absentee ballot. These bits of information are not promoted in their mailings but are REQUIRED in order for your voter registration or absentee ballot request to be processed.
 
It has also come to the attention of Clerks across the state that these political groups are sending mass mailings to inactive or deceased voters. Representatives from our Clerk’s Association have tried to work with these groups and urged them to improve their processes so that these situations can be avoided, but to no avail. If you receive such a mailing on behalf of a family member please disregard it and know that it was not generated from the Town/Village of Harrison. Our office keeps up-to-date databases and would never solicit voter information of any type.
 
The best way to prepare yourself for the upcoming elections is to verify your voter information at myvote.wi.gov. This useful website will provide you with sample ballots, voter registration status, and polling locations.
