Important Community Information Regarding Election Day, April 7, 2020

(Green Bay, WI) The City of Green Bay has been working diligently to ensure that all votes will be counted, and all new registrants can register. The City is encountering obstacles, and has instituted additional measures to conduct a full and fair election for Green Bay.

Voters have positively responded to Governor Evers’ recommendation to complete an absentee ballot, and the clerk’s office has received thousands of absentee ballot requests. The City of Green Bay is working tirelessly, and has processed almost 17,000 requests, mailed out over 10,300 ballots to voters, and have approximately 7000 requests in the queue. By way of comparison, the presidential preference primary in April 2016 had over 2700 absentee ballots cast.

Due to concerns over COVID-19, the city has created two Election Day emergency polling locations at West High School’s gymnasium (966 Shawano Avenue) and East High School’s gymnasium (1415 East Walnut). These locations will implement protective measures for both voters and poll workers.

The City of Green Bay would like to thank Green Bay Area Public Schools for their continued partnership in helping us meet the needs of our community.

We strongly urge voters to refrain from bringing children.

We will have freshly sanitized pens, but encourage voters to bring their own black ball-point pens (gel or felt-tip pens are not acceptable, nor are pens of different colors).
