WISCONSIN VOTING DEADLINES FOR NOVEMBER 3, 2020 ELECTION:

October 14, 2020: Your last chance to register by mail or online. Visit https://myvote.wi.gov to complete the registration process in minutes or find your municipal clerk’s mailing address.

October 15 to November 1, 2020: During this closed registration period, you must register to vote in your municipal clerk’s office.

October 20, 2020: The first day that municipal clerks may offer in-person absentee voting in their office or a satellite location.  Start dates and office hours vary by municipality.  Please visit  https://myvote.wi.gov to find your municipal clerk office’s contact information.

October 27, 2020: Practical deadline for voters to return their mail absentee ballots to their municipal clerk’s office.  The US Postal Service recommends allowing one week for your completed absentee ballot to be delivered to your municipal clerk’s office. After this date, voters should find other options for returning their absentee ballot, which include delivering it to their municipal clerk’s office or a secure drop box if one is provided by their clerk. Most voters can also deliver their ballot to their polling place by 8 p.m. on Election Day, but in the City of Manitowoc absentee ballots must be delivered to City Hall.

October 29, 2020: The legal deadline for most voters to request an absentee ballot by mail. However, the Wisconsin Election Commission states it is unrealistic for any voter to wait this late to request an absentee ballot and expect to receive it in time to return it by Election Day to be counted.

October 30, 2020:  Final day to register to vote at your municipal clerk’s office. Visit

 https://myvote.wi.gov to find your local clerk’s contact information and hours of operation.

November 1, 2020: The last day that municipal clerks may offer in-person absentee voting in their office or a satellite location. Most clerks only offer absentee voting in their office until Friday, October 30, and office hours vary by municipality. Please visit https://myvote.wi.gov to find your municipal clerk office’s contact information.

November 3, 2020: Election Day. Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., and voters who are returning an absentee ballot to their polling place must get it there by 8 p.m. However, the City of Manitowoc counts absentee ballots at a City Hall so all absentee ballots need to be delivered to 900 Quay St, Manitowoc.

 

August 11, 2020 ELECTION:  1,463 eligible voters in the Town of Newton.  300 people voted;  of that number 160 were absentee voters.

250 absentee ballots were sent out at a cost of $1.25 each.  90 were not returned which cost the Town $112.50.

The Manitowoc County Recycling Center as waived fees for Wood Mulch requested by any municipalities in Manitowoc County.  We did this to deal with the surplus of wood mulch generated from the incoming brush at both the Basswood and Woodland Compost Sites. Wood mulch charges are normally $10 per cubic yard.  This offer includes loading the material but it does not cover any delivery fees.  This offer does not apply to residents or businesses, though businesses hauling for a municipality may be utilized to haul wood mulch to the municipality.

We are hoping that municipalities that self-haul recyclables or yard materials to the Manitowoc County Recycling Facility can utilize their empty trailers/trucks during their ackhaul and put the maerial to use in their communities.

To take advantage of this offer just pull on the scale and request it.  Loading is generally available M-F between 7:30 am and noon and 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm.  However, if you need large amounts or have a high sided trailer or dump truck, we advise calling ahead to 683-4333 to confirm a wheel loader is available to load you.
