Spring Election – April 7, 2020

Fall Primary - August 11, 2020

Presidential Election  - November 3, 2020

2020 is a Presidential Election year, which means you will soon be finding voter registration forms and absentee ballot request forms in your mailbox.  These mailings are not from your municipal clerk, even though they may appear to be.  They are sent by special interest groups and the pre-filled voter information on the forms is often outrageously inaccurate.  To ensure you are properly registered or to apply for an absentee ballot, please visit www.myvote.wi.gov or contact me, Dixie Bernsteen at         262-728-3471 or email: clerk@townofdelavan.com
