You are receiving this high-priority communication because it contains information that requires immediate action.

  • The next survey required by the 2012 Consent Decree, Municipal Clerk’s Survey #2, is now available here: Municipality Consent Decree Survey #2
  • This survey must be completed no later than Monday, July 2, 2012
  • All municipalities must complete this survey, even if they have no military or permanent overseas voters on file at this time.
  • This survey asks how many absentee ballot requests from military and permanent overseas voters you have on file as of June 30, 2012 for the 2012 Partisan Primary and how they want to receive their ballot (by mail, email, or fax).
  • This survey is regarding military and permanent overseas absentee ballot requests for the 2012 August Partisan Primary.  If you have military or permanent overseas electors who have requested to receive absentee ballots for ONLY the 2012 November General Election (and not the 2012 August Partisan Primary) – DO NOT include them in this survey.
  • You may complete the survey before June 30th, however, you must check for new absentee applications from military and permanent overseas voters and update your survey response if you receive any additional requests on or before June 30th.
  • This survey also requests the date(s) on which you sent absentee ballots to military and permanent overseas electors and how you sent them (by mail, email, or fax).

Prompt completion of this survey is required by order of the federal court, and compliance is being required and monitored by the United States Department of Justice. 

Additional information on the 2012 Consent Decree can be found here: http://gab.wi.gov/node/2379.
