Notice of Spring Election and
Sample Ballots
April 6, 2021
OFFICE OF THE DANE COUNTY CLERK
TO THE VOTERS OF DANE COUNTY:
Notice is hereby given of a spring election to be held in Dane County, on April 6, 2021,
at which the officers named below shall be chosen. The names of the candidates for
each office to be voted for, whose nominations have been certified to or filed in this
office, are given under the title of the office, each in its proper column, together with
the questions submitted to a vote, for a referendum, if any, in the sample ballot below.
Information to Voters
Upon entering the polling place, a voter shall state his or her name and address,
show an acceptable form of photo identification and sign the poll book before being
permitted to vote. If a voter does not have acceptable photo identification the voter
may obtain a free photo ID for voting from the Division of Motor Vehicles. If a voter
is not registered to vote, a voter may register to vote at the polling place serving his
or her residence, if the voter presents proof of residence in a form specified by law.
Where ballots are distributed to voters, the initials of two inspectors must appear
on the ballot. Upon being permitted to vote, the voter shall retire alone to a voting
booth and cast his or her ballot except that a voter who is a parent or guardian may
be accompanied by the voter’s minor child or minor ward. An election official may
inform the voter of the proper manner for casting a vote, but the official may not in
any manner advise or indicate a particular voting choice.
Where Optical Scan Voting is Used
The voter shall fill in the oval or connect the arrow next to the name of the candidate
of his or her choice for each office for which he or she intends to vote. To vote for a
person whose name does not appear on the ballot, the voter shall write in the name
of the person of his or her choice
in the space provided for a write-in vote and fill in the oval or connect the arrow next
to the write-in line. On referendum questions, the voter shall fill in the oval or connect
the arrow next to “yes” if in favor of the question, or the voter shall fill in the oval or
connect the arrow next to “no” if opposed to the question.
When using an electronic ballot marking device (“ExpressVote”) to mark an optical
scan ballot, the voter shall touch the screen at the name of the candidate of his or her
choice for each office for which he or she intends to vote. To vote for a person whose
name does not appear on the ballot, the voter shall type in the name of the person of
his or her choice in the space provided for a write-in vote. On referendum questions,
the voter shall touch the screen at “yes” if in favor of the question, or the voter shall
touch the screen at “no” if opposed to the question.
Spoiled Ballot
If the voter spoils a optical scan ballot, he or she shall return it to an election official
who shall issue another ballot in its place, but not more than three ballots shall be
issued to any one voter. If the ballot has not been initialed by two inspectors or is
defective in any other way, the voter shall return it to the election official, who shall
issue a proper ballot in its place.
After Voting the Ballot
After an official optical scan ballot is marked, it shall be inserted in the security
sleeve, so the marks do not show. After casting his or her vote, the voter shall leave
the booth, insert the ballot in the voting device and discard the sleeve, or deliver the
ballot to an inspector for deposit. If a central count system is used, the voter shall
insert the ballot in the ballot box and discard the sleeve or deliver the ballot to an
inspector for deposit. The voter shall leave the polling place promptly.
A voter may select an individual to assist in casting his or her vote if the voter declares
to the presiding official that he or she is unable to read, has difficulty reading, writing
or understanding English or that due to disability is unable to cast his or her ballot.
The selected individual rendering assistance may not be the voter’s employer or an
agent of that employer or an officer or agent of a labor organization which represents
the voter.
The following is a sample of the official ballot:
