Common Council President Cavalier Johnson will host a news conference TOMORROW – Saturday, October 31st with Mayor Tom Barrett to discuss important voting information ahead of Tuesday’s Fall General Election (November 3rd). The news conference will be at 12:30 p.m. on Market St. just outside the Frank P. Zeidler Municipal Building (E. Kilbourn Ave. at Market St.).

Election Commission Executive Director Claire Woodall-Vogg will also participate in tomorrow’s news conference

“This is undoubtedly the most important election in the modern era of American politics, and during this final push I want to discuss important voter facts and timelines to help empower Milwaukeeans as they make their votes count on Tuesday,” President Johnson said.

President Johnson said he is especially focused on providing key absentee voter information, as the city will conduct the final few days of in-person absentee voting, and as people decide where and when they will drop off their absentee ballots.

“This is a critical time, as voters can no longer return their absentee ballot via mail and need to take the proper steps to ensure that their vote is counted,” said President Johnson. “There are 15 secure drop boxes stationed throughout the city, and submitting your ballot via drop box is the best way to make sure it is received.”

Voters can return their absentee ballots to the drop boxes until 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 3. This allows for the ballots to be delivered for counting by 8 p.m. as required under state law. The drop box locations are as follows:

Residents can also continue to vote early in-person through Sunday, November 1st. A full list of early voting sites and additional election information can be found here.
