Voters encouraged to vote absentee for April 7 election
For the City Times
WOOD COUNTY – Due to COVID-19, Wood County voters are strongly urged to act now to vote absentee for the April 7 spring election and Presidential Preference Primary.
“Polls will be open in Wood County for those who need them on Election Day, but most voters should vote absentee for this election,” said Trent Miner, Wood County Clerk. “For that to happen, you should request an absentee ballot as soon as possible.”
Acting by Wednesday, March 18, is especially important for anyone who needs to register to vote by mail, Miner said.
If your name or address has changed since the last election, you need to register with your current information. You can check your registration status at https://myvote.wi.gov, click on “My Voter Info.”
If you know you are registered but cannot find yourself on the website, you should contact your clerk or Wisconsin Elections Commission. There is possibly a typo in the spelling of your name or your date of birth. Voters who cannot find themselves on MyVote should call their municipal clerk’s office or call the Wisconsin Elections Commission at 866-VOTE-WIS (866-868-3947) or 608-261-8005.
