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!
