Madison Public Library played a valuable role in the general election. It assisted the City of Madison Clerk’s Office by providing many of its locations for voter registration, early voting, absentee ballot dropoff and polling places. The Dream Bus mobile library also served as an absentee ballot return site. Some key takeaways:
- seven libraries served as locations for in-person absentee voting
- In-person absentee voting ran from Oct. 20–31, and by the end of that period, more than 13,000 absentee ballots had been collected for the Clerk’s Office
- Four locations were Election Day polling places
- Meadowridge Library was the third-most-popular location in the city of Madison for early voting
Thanks to the Clerk’s Office for its incredible hard work in making voting go smoothly in the City of Madison this election, and to the eligible voters who shattered early voting records!
