WISCONSIN RAPIDS – The city of Wisconsin Rapids has announced that absentee voting will be administered at an additional care facility – Edenbrook, 130 Strawberry Ln, Wisconsin Rapids – on March 30 at 10:30 a.m.
“Special Voting Deputies appointed by the City of Wisconsin Rapids will be administering absentee voting for the residents of this facility for the Spring Election at the above time and place. Any qualified elector who is unable or unwilling to appear at the polling place on Election Day may request to vote an absentee ballot,” a city release stated.
“A qualified elector is any U.S. citizen, who will be 18 years of age or older on Election Day, who has resided in the ward or municipality where he or she wishes to vote for at least 28 consecutive days before the election. The elector must also be registered in order to receive an absentee ballot.
“Only observers from each of the two recognized political parties whose candidates for governor or president received the greatest number of votes in the municipality at the most recent general election may accompany the deputies to each facility where absentee voting will take place. The observers may observe the process of absentee ballot distribution in the common areas of the home, facility, or complex. Each party wishing to have an observer present shall submit the name of the observer to the clerk or board of election commissioners no later than the close of business on the last business day prior to the visit.”
Family members of residents may be present at the time of voting.
