Democracy in the Park
|Date:||September 26, 2020|
City of Madison poll workers will be in every City of Madison community park, neighborhood park, and mini park to register voters, answer questions about the voting process, and accept the delivery of absentee ballots on Saturday, September 26 from 9-3PM. Poll workers will be wearing bright yellow vests and can be found by one of the Vote yard signs you are used to seeing at your polling place. The poll workers will be wearing face masks, disinfecting pens and clipboards after each use, and frequently sanitizing their hands.
Voters who need to register should bring proof of address. Absentee voters who still need to find a witness could have a poll worker serve as their witness.
At the end of the event, absentee envelopes will be secured with a tamper-evident seal. Poll workers will document the seal number and the number of absentee ballots. They will immediately take the ballots to the City Clerk’s Office, where both the seal number and the number of absentee ballots will be verified. The Clerk’s Office will scan the barcode on each returned absentee envelope the following day, so voters will be able to check https://MyVote.wi.gov on Monday to verify that their ballot is ready to be counted at the polls.
In the case of inclement weather, the event will be held on Sunday instead.
