Brown County Browser: Elections update
All voters who have requested an Absentee ballot should have received it in the mail by now. All ballots were mailed on July 15th. Over 2,500 voters took advantage of Voting Safely At Home for the Primary election on August 11th.
Voters in our townships along with the cities of Cobden, Evan and Hanska are scheduled to receive their ballots around July 27th. Registered voters will not be required to have a witness acknowledge their signature for the 2020 Primary. Voters are encouraged to return their voted ballots to the county to ensure delivery by Election Day. A secure drop box is being installed in the lobby of the Law Enforcement Center if voters are more comfortable with hand delivery as opposed to postal service. The drop box in the parking lot is NOT to be used for returning ballots.
Absentee and Mail ballots have a trackable barcode on the signature envelope that allows a voter to go to our website to determine if their ballot has been accepted.
Requests for absentee ballots continue to be accepted through August 10. It would be appropriate to receive these applications at least 7-10 days before the election to ensure timely postal delivery.
