CONCERNED ABOUT COMING TO THE POLLS ON APRIL 7TH AMID THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC?

CONSIDER CASTING AN ABSENTEE BALLOT. IT IS EASIER THAN YOU THINK. 

WE ARE TAKING COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS SERIOUSLY
  
The City of Cudahy Clerk/Treasurer’s Office is recommending that anyone concerned about the COVID-19 Virus consider an alternate means to cast a ballot that can minimize direct contact with other people and reduce crowd size at polling locations.

  • You may cast your ballot via absentee by mail. Registered voters can obtain an absentee ballot via mail through https://myvote.wi.gov/en-us/ or at the Clerk’s Office before 5pm on April 2, 2020.
  • You may cast your ballot via In-Person Absentee in the Clerk’s Office beginning March 23 on weekdays between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. on Friday, April 3, 2020. No absentee voting may be conducted on Monday, April 6, 2020.

If you are planning to vote in-person on Election Day, try to arrive at off-peak times.

  • You may bring your own black or blue ball point pen to complete your ballot. Be sure the ink will not run or the machine may not be able to read your ballot.  

Preventive action at polling locations. 

Based on available data, the most important measures to prevent transmission of viruses in crowded public areas include careful and consistent cleaning of one’s hands. Therefore: 

  • The City will have alcohol-based hand sanitizers with at least 60% alcohol for use in frequently used locations such as registration desks, voting equipment and entrance/exits.
  • Incorporate social distancing strategies, as feasible. Social distancing strategies increase the space between      individuals and decrease the frequency of contact among individuals to reduce the risk of spreading a disease. Keeping individuals at least 6 feet apart is ideal based on what is known about COVID-19. If this is not feasible, efforts should be made to keep individuals as far apart as is practical. Feasibility of strategies will depend on the space available in the polling location and the number of voters who arrive at one time. Upon arrival to try to remain a distance of 6 feet (if feasible) from others and refrain from greeting others with physical contact (e.g., handshakes).
