Lake County polls open for 2020 Primary, City & School Board elections
City of Madison voters vote at the downtown Madison City Armory.

Polls are open until 7:00 Tuesday for the 2020 Primary election, and also locally for the Madison City Commission and Madison Central School Board election.

Voting is taking place in ten precincts at six different locations in Lake County.  One of those locations is the downtown Madison City Armory, where Madison City voters are casting their ballots.  As of 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, city officials reported 257 of the city’s 5071 active voters (or just more than five-percent) had stopped into the City Armory to cast their ballots.  With the COVID-19 pandemic, many voters have already cast absentee ballots, and those ballots are currently being processed at the Lake County Courthouse in Madison.  

 Registered voters in Herman, Winfred, Farmington, Leroy, Clarno, Orland, and Lakeview townships vote at the Lake County 4-H Center at 1000 South Egan Avenue in Madison.  Other polling locations in Lake County include the Chester and Franklin Townships and the town of Brant Lake voting at the Chester Fire Hall; Wentworth and Rutland Townships and the town of Wentworth voting at the Wentworth Fire Hall; Nunda and Summit Townships and the town of Nunda voting at the Nunda Fire Hall; and Concord, Badus, and Wayne Townships and the Town of Ramona voting at the Ramona Parish Hall.  

Voters in the City of Madison are electing two city commissioners to serve three year terms, and in the Madison Central School District, voters are electing two school board members to serve three-year terms.  Along with the state primary elections for Democrats and Republicans, local Republicans are also voting on three candidates for the Lake County Commission to go on to the general election in November.
