I am tracking my ballot on the MyVote.wi.gov website. Why isn’t the site updated to show that I voted?

We are working to individually update each Town of Dunn voter’s record in the database to show their voting activity on November 3. This is time-consuming and must be checked for accuracy before you will see the updates on the MyVote.wi.gov website.

In Wisconsin, ballots are private and the voting machine that counted each vote does not have any identifying information about the voter. The barcode on the ballot does not identify the voter or update the voting activity. To protect the privacy of the ballots, there is an extra step for recording voting activities. Many municipalities with provisional ballots to resolve will not begin this work until after their Board of Canvass November 9, 2020.

All Town of Dunn ballots that were returned by 8 pm on Election Day were counted on November 3, 2020, by 9:00 pm. There were no provisional ballots. There was one rejected absentee ballot in the town for a voter who passed away prior to Election Day. No other returned absentee ballots were rejected. We are working through getting the information input into the system. Thank you for your patience and for your participation in the election!

Drive-Thru Oak Tree Pickup

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Town is hosting the Fall Event and Arbor day in a new way! In lieu of these community get-togethers, and in order to promote environmental stewardship and the planting of trees, the Town will be hosting a free tree pickup at the Town Hall Parking Lot on Saturday, October 17th from 4 PM to 5 PM. There is no need to leave your car! Volunteers will hand out small, bare-root oak trees to people as they drive thru. We hope you are able to attend this event! The Town Park Commission looks forward to when we can host the traditional Arbor Day and the Fall Event again!

Wisconsin Election Commission Mailer

The Wisconsin Election Commission has just mailed over 2 million absentee ballot request forms to registered voters statewide. This mailer may cause some confusion for people who have already requested an absentee ballot to be mailed to them since the mailing list of voters was generated months ago, by necessity. Therefore, there will be voters who will receive the mailer who have already requested an absentee ballot. Voters should check MyVote.wi.gov to review their application status.

If you have not previously requested an absentee ballot but would still like to, please do so as soon as possible. Voters should not wait since the US Postal system has indicated voters should expect 2-5 days for the delivery of first-class mail. In order for the application to be processed and a ballot sent and returned, it is important to begin the process and return the ballot as soon as possible.

Requesting an Absentee Ballot: For those who wish to receive a ballot by mail, please MyVote.wi.gov to request an absentee ballot. You can also register to vote, view what is on your ballot, or find your polling place by visiting the MyVote.wi.gov site. Ballots will start being mailed to residents beginning on September 17th.

Return your ballot early using the Town of Dunn Drop Boxes: If you choose to drop off your ballot instead of mailing it, a secure drop box is located next to the mailbox at the Town Hall at 4156 County Road B. Enter the parking lot on Keenan Road. A second drop box is located near the front door of the Town Hall. Do not use drop boxes in Madison or in other municipalities.

Track your ballot by visiting MyVote.wi.gov. If tracking on MyVote does not show that your ballot was received by November 3, 2020, please call the Town Hall at (608) 838-1081. Ballots not received by 8 PM on Election Day, November 3, 2020, will not be counted.

A message from the Dane County Sherrif's Office:

Thefts Continue Throughout Dane County

August 12, 2020 – Residents of rural Dane County are not immune to the recent crime trends of car thefts and burglaries. The Dane County Sheriff’s Office is reminding all residents, no matter where you live, to secure vehicles, garages, and homes.

Between Monday night and Tuesday morning, there were two burglaries resulting in stolen vehicles in the Town of Dunn. During that same time period, several Cambridge area residents reported property taken from unlocked vehicles.

The thieves are typically scouring neighborhoods in search of unlocked vehicles. They then use the garage door openers in those vehicles to access the garage and house, where they can steal whatever valuables are easily accessible, including car keys/fobs. To ensure you are not the next victim, lock vehicles, garage doors, and any house access, at all times.

08/03/2020

The Town of Dunn is actively recruiting people who are willing to serve in-person voters at the November 3, 2020, General Election from 6:30 am to about 9:30 pm - or a portion of that time.

Training to become a poll worker involves some study of election materials and in-person training and requires a two-year commitment of service. Training and working at the polls may be done as a volunteer or may be paid at $9/hour. COVID-19 protective measures will be in place on Election Day. If you have questions or are available and interested, please email Kelsey Shepperd at [email protected].

Town of Dunn Food Cart Night Postponed Until 2021

Groundswell Conservancy and the Town of Dunn are sad to announce the Town of Dunn Food Cart Night scheduled for tomorrow, July 15th has been postponed until 2021 due to COVID-19. Any further questions can be directed to [email protected].

Starting next week Monday, 7/13, face coverings will be REQUIRED when indoors in Madison and Dane County. More info below:

Based on public health research that shows that wearing face coverings are critical to slowing the spread of COVID-19, we are issuing Emergency Order #8, which requires that everyone age 5 and over wears a face covering or mask when in any enclosed building where other people, except members of their household or living unit, could be present. This order will take effect on Monday, July 13, 2020, at 8:00 am. It applies to all of Dane County.

We do not take these orders lightly. We are facing two public health pandemics—COVID-19 and racism. People of color in our county have already experienced racism and discrimination when wearing masks in public, which is unacceptable. It is on every person in our county to do better. People should assume that everyone wearing a mask is doing it to protect you and themselves. If someone is not wearing a mask, assume they are genuinely not able to do so.

Read what this order entails, how to protect yourself from getting or spreading COVID-19, and what local government will be doing to get face coverings to those who need them in our news release: https://bit.ly/2Cb6Pvq
