The Lake County Auditor’s Office is busy preparing for how to handle the June primary election amidst the concerns with the COVID-19 pandemic.  Auditor Bobbi Janke discussed the issue with county commissioners during their meeting on Tuesday. Janke said that currently she has some concerns with some of the county’s polling places, and also with the election workers.

Janke said she will be encouraging people to vote by mail and that more information about how to do that will be coming out from the Secretary of State’s Office.  She said she is working with other county officials to plan for the June 2nd election.

Absentee voting for the June 2nd primary election is scheduled to begin on April 17th.

Along with the statewide primary election, in Lake County that will include a Republican primary for Lake County commission candidates.  There will also be the Madison City and Madison Central School Board election. That election was postponed from its original April 14th date because of the coronavirus and subsequent restrictions.
