Municipal Clerks Must Complete Mandatory Reporting Requirement by July 16 (today)

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

  • This is a *NEW* reporting requirement of the 2012 Consent Decree.  The Municipal Clerk’s Mandatory Reporting Requirement #3, is now available here: Consent Decree Municipality Mandatory Reporting Requirement #3.
  • If you do not have internet access, please complete and return the included paper copy of the survey.
  • This survey must be completed no later than Monday, July 16, 2012 (today).
  • 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 received between July 1, 2012 and July 15, 2012 for the 2012 August 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 received requests from military or permanent overseas electors who wish 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.
  • 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 may be found here: http://gab.wi.gov/node/2379.

Thank you in advance for your timely response!
