Voting in this year’s state primary and combined Madison City and Madison Central School Board election will be a little different due to restrictions caused by the coronavirus outbreak.  Madison City Commissioners on Monday approved the use of the city’s downtown armory for voting during the June 2nd election. City Finance Officer Jennifer Eimers told commissioners that the Armory building is needed for city residents to vote in the June election. 

City Attorney David Jencks said that using the city’s armory for the election makes sense.

Eimers said they are being trained on how to properly set up and disinfect to keep election workers and voters safe during the election.  She said though that residents are being encouraged to vote absentee for this year’s election so they won’t have to physically go to the polls.  Eimers said the Secretary of State is sending out absentee voting applications to all registered voters in the state.  She said that they will be providing more information to local residents soon on how to absentee vote in the upcoming election.
