MADISON, Wis. — City of Madison voters can cast absentee ballots at drive-up voting locations starting Tuesday.

A release said, the voting locations were established based on a Pandemic Voting Access Equity Analysis conducted after the April election. The clerk’s office worked with Public Health Madison & Dane County to develop a safe voting plan for the fall elections. Part of the plan is to offer absentee voting outdoors.

Voters can use their own blue or black pen to mark their ballots. If planning to use their own pen, the release said to wave their pens at the absentee ballot clerks approaching their vehicle. The absentee clerks will be wearing face masks and high visibility vests. They will disinfect pens, clipboards and envelop sealers after every use. Voter IDs will be checked through the window and if a person needs to register, clerks can look at the proof of address through the window.

Before receiving an absentee ballot, an acceptable form of photo ID is required. Out-of-state driver licenses, out-of-state ID cards, faculty ID cards and high school ID cards are not acceptable forms of voter identification.

The August Primary is Aug. 11 and voters must pick a political party and vote for candidates in that party.
