SUBSTITUTE - Establishing in-person absentee voting locations for the 2022 Partisan Primary and General Election.


WHEREAS, exercising the right to vote is an essential component of a healthy democracy; and


WHEREAS, the goal of the Madison City Clerk's Office is that each eligible voter will be able to cast a ballot and have that ballot counted; and


WHEREAS, absentee ballots cast at in-person absentee voting sites are less likely than absentee ballots sent via mail to be rejected at the polls due to a missing voter signature, missing witness signature, or incomplete witness address; and


WHEREAS, it is inequitable to limit in-person absentee voting to Madison residents who are able to obtain transportation and pay for parking downtown; and


WHEREAS, in-person absentee voting can provide greater accessibility for voters who encounter barriers to voting by mail or voting at the polls on Election Day; and


WHEREAS, offering in-person absentee voting at multiple sites throughout the City may further racial equity for residents who have not historically been involved in the voting process;


NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the City of Madison chooses to make in-person absentee voting more accessible and equitable by establishing multiple locations for in-person absentee voting; and
