Anyone who is not a registered voter and wants to vote in the June primary election needs to do so today. Today is the deadline for voter registration for the June 2nd election, which in Lake County includes the primary election and the Madison City and Madison Central School Board elections. People can register to vote through the county auditor’s office.
Absentee voting continues for the June election. Lake County Auditor Bobbi Janke said late last week that close to 14-hundred Lake County voters had either requested absentee ballots by mail or voted in the Auditor’s Office. Those wanting to vote in person at the Auditor’s Office are asked to call or e-mail first to make an appointment due to COVID-19 precautions that need to be taken. The Secretary of State’s office mailed out absentee ballot request forms to all registered voters in the state. Those can be filled out and mailed to the Auditor’s Office and an absentee ballot will be mailed to the voter.
Polling places will also be open in Lake County on Election Day on June 2nd. A listing of polling locations as well as links to sample ballots and other election information can be found on KJAM’s Election page.
