Where do I Vote, Register to Vote, or Vote Absentee
There are several mailings that have been sent to voters across the country. These mailings originate from both major parties as well as special interest groups.
WEC will send a voter mailing on Sept. 1
On Sept. 1, 2020, the Wisconsin Elections Commission is sent an informational mailing to approximately 2.6 million Wisconsin voters about voting options for the November 2020 General Election, including how to request an absentee ballot. The mailing is only going to voters who are registered to vote in Wisconsin, not in Active Mover’s status, and did not already have a General Election absentee request on file at the end of June.If you’ve already requested an absentee ballot, you can check the status of your request at any time on https://myvote.wi.gov/en-us/.
This mailing is designed to encourage voters who want to request absentee ballots to do so early and return the ballot promptly.
While the mailing encourages voters to use Myvote.wi.gov, a paper absentee application is included so that individuals without Internet access have an option to easily request a ballot.
Though ballots for the Nov. 3 General Election won't be available until mid-September, we are encouraging voters to request their ballots as early as possible to allow village staff and election workers ample time to process applications on file before the rush.
The easiest way to apply for an absentee ballot is through the MyVote Wisconsin website at https://myvote.wi.gov/en-us/. A photo ID must be on file with MyVote or one will need to be uploaded during the process. Voters can also fill out the absentee application form and either drop it off at the Municipal Services Center or email it to email@example.com. If a photo ID is not on file, it will be required so a copy should be included with the application.
The first batch of ballots for November 3 must be mailed September 17. After that date, ballots will be mailed within 24 hours of the business day the request was received. Absentee ballots may be requested by mail until October 29. However, we encourage you to request as early as possible to allow time for the USPS to deliver the ballots to you and for you to mail them back.
**All absentee ballots need to be returned to the Village Clerk's office by 8 p.m. on November 3. The Village of Suamico would like to stress the importance to residents to return ballots early if mailing via USPS, but a another option is to hand deliver them to the Suamico Municipal Services Center during regular business hours or to the outside dropbox that is available 24/7. **
Please contact Village Clerk or Deputy Clerk, at (920) 434-2212 during office hours of 7:30 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
*summer hours are 7 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Thursday, 7 am to 11 am on Fridays.

In response to staffing and social distancing challenges resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become necessary for the Village to make changes to the polling locations for the November 3, 2020 General Election. All voters choosing to vote on election day will vote at 2310 Lineville Road, Suamico, WI 54313 in the building vacated by The Marq. The building is directly to the east of the Shopko building in the Urban Edge Towne Centre. We want to thank Jeff Noeldner with Midwest Expansion for graciously allowing the Village to utilize the facility at no cost to the Village.
