Important Oakfield Info; COVID-19

April 7, 2020 Election:

As of 3/23/20, the April 7, 2020 election is still happening.  The Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) is encouraging all voters to request an absentee ballot for this election.  At this time, in-person absentee voting is still an option, but it is strongly encouraged to request your ballot online, and do so early, well before the deadline of April 2nd.  

To request your absentee ballot online go to myvote.wi.gov and if you have difficulty navigating the site, click here for a detailed set of instructions.  

**If you have a PO Box please follow the instructions for requesting your ballot be sent there**

The preferred marking device for our ballots is the PaperMate Flair pen.  IF you are able to, please use this type of pen.  Please DO NOT USE crayon or gel pens; these have the tendency to gum up the machine and cause problems reading ballots.  

Dog licensing for 2020:

State statute still states all dogs in the Village must be licensed by April 1st to avoid a late fee.  Licenses can still be processed while you wait in the entryway.  The doors are locked to reduce the number of people in and out of the building but we're still open for business!

If you would like to avoid coming in to the office you can drop off payment, a copy of the current rabies certificate (if you would like a copy made and your original returned, please include a note saying so), and a self-addressed stamped envelope to return the license and documents to you in the dropbox located on the wall in the front entrance.  This box is accessible 24/7 and a new sign was hung to make it more visible.  You may also return to pick up your license once it is processed.  A simple note indicating your preference will work, the clerk is the only one with a key to access the dropbox. 

Garbage & recycling collection:

Nothing has changed for this service as of right now.  As a reminder, excess trash or recycling should NOT be taken to the Village Garage.

Voters Encouraged to Vote Absentee for April 7th Election

Because of the COVID-19, voters in the Village of Oakfield are strongly urged to act now to vote absentee for the April 7 Spring Election and Presidential Preference Primary.

Polls will be open for those who need them on Election Day, but most voters are encouraged to vote absentee for this election. For that to happen, you should request an absentee ballot as soon as possible.

Acting by Wednesday, March 18, is especially important for anyone who needs to register to vote by mail. If your name or address has changed since the last election, you need to register with your current information. You can check your registration status at https://myvote.wi.gov, click on “My Voter Info.”

If you know you are registered but cannot find yourself on the website, you should contact your clerk or Wisconsin Elections Commission. There is possibly a typo in the spelling of your name or your date of birth. Voters who cannot find themselves on MyVote should call their municipal clerk’s office at 920-583-4400 or call the Wisconsin Elections Commission at 866-VOTE-WIS (866-868-3947) or 608-261-8005.

How to Register to Vote by the Deadline

Wednesday, March 18 is the deadline for electors to register to vote by mail or online for the Presidential Preference Primary and Spring Election. After this date, electors must register in person in the municipal clerk's office or at the polling place on Election Day.

According to state law, mailed voter registration forms must be postmarked no later than the third Wednesday before the election. Online registration closes at 11:59 p.m. the same day.

Online voter registration is available at https://myvote.wi.gov. There are two ways you can register using the website:

· People with a Wisconsin driver license or state ID card whose address is current with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation can complete their online registration immediately. People who need to update their address with DOT can accomplish that online and complete their online registration.

· People without a Wisconsin driver license or state ID card can fill out the voter registration form online, then print it, sign it and mail it to their municipal clerk’s office along with a proof-of residence document. The website has detailed instructions. If you do not have a printer where you are, you can save the completed form as a PDF and make arrangements to have a family member or a friend with a printer, or a copy center, to print it for you.

Voter registration forms that can be printed and filled out by hand are also available here in English: https://elections.wi.gov/forms/el-131-fillable

Voter registration forms that can be printed and filled out by hand are also available here in Spanish: https://elections.wi.gov/forms/el-131-spanish

Blank voter registration forms are also available at the clerk’s office, 130 N. Main Street, during regular hours.

Remember, the deadline to register online or by mail is Wednesday, March 18.

Voters who miss the deadline may also register in their municipal clerk’s office until the Friday before the election, April 3 or at the polls on Election Day.

How to Request an Absentee Ballot

There are several ways registered voters can request absentee ballots. If they have internet access, the easiest way is to sign up at MyVote Wisconsin, https://myvote.wi.gov.

Just look for the “Vote Absentee” button near the top of the page. On a mobile phone, use the menu button in the upper right corner of the website. There is a three-step process that starts with putting in your name and date of birth, followed by requesting your ballot. If you don’t already have a photo ID on file with your clerk’s office, you can upload a copy. Mobile phone users can take a picture and upload it to MyVote. Absentee ballot requests submitted this way go directly to your clerk’s office, and you can track your ballot by returning to the website.

Voters can also request absentee ballots by mailing, emailing or faxing their municipal clerk’s office. You can find your clerk’s contact information on MyVote Wisconsin. These requests must be accompanied by a copy of your photo ID. If you already have a photo ID on file from previous absentee requests under your current registration, you will not need to provide it again.

Voters who are indefinitely confined, meaning they may have difficulty getting to the polls for reason of age, illness, infirmity, or disability are not required to provide a photo ID. Voters in care facilities can have a representative of the facility confirm the resident's identity instead of providing a photo ID. More information on photo ID and exemptions can be found at bringit.wi.gov.

The deadline for registered voters to request an absentee ballot be mailed to you is the Thursday before the election, April 2. Voters are urged not to wait, due to possible delays in mail delivery. If you get an absentee ballot mailed to you, you can still decide to vote at the polls on Election Day if you haven’t returned it.

Your absentee ballot must be received in your clerk’s office or at your polling place by 8 p.m. on Election Day. Again, voters are urged to request and return ballots as soon as possible.
