Body

Whereas, Voting is both a right and a vital core of a healthy democracy; and

 

Whereas, Section 6.855, Wis. Stats., allows the Common Council to designate alternate locations for in-person absentee voting; and

 

Whereas, Voting by mail is not the best option for every voter; and

 

Whereas, In the Fall of 2020, the City broke historical records for in-person absentee voting when 61,323 voters cast ballots at in-person absentee voting locations; comprising 36% of all absentee ballots cast; and

 

Whereas, Offering in-person absentee voting at more sites offers greater opportunities to voters throughout the City and may further racial equity and access to in-person voting opportunities; now, therefore be it.

 

Resolved, By the Common Council of the City of Milwaukee, that the Election Commission provide additional absentee voting at any of the following locations for the Fall 2022 Elections:

 

1.                     Atkinson Library, 1960 W. Atkinson Ave

4.                      Center Street Library, 2727 W. Fond du Lac Ave

6.                      East Library, 2320 N. Cramer St.
