Absentee Ballot Drop Box Information

Please read this article (Article: https://www.channel3000.com/i/wisconsin-supreme-court-disallows-absentee-ballot-drop-boxes-2/) on the recent Wisconsin Supreme Court’s ruling on ballot drop boxes and the dropping off of ballots in person.
A couple key points from the article:
🛑 “The court said absentee ballots can be returned only to the clerk’s office or a designated alternative site but that site cannot be an unstaffed drop box.”
🛑 “No one other than the voter can return a ballot in person.”

Please note: The Village of North Freedom does, indeed, have a drop box at their Village Office location (105 N Maple St, North Freedom, WI 53951). It is staffed by the Clerk/Treasurer ONLY during the open Office hours (Monday through Friday 8:00 A.M. to 3:30 P.M. – Closed daily 12:00 P.M. to 12:30 P.M. for the lunch hour) therefore, a voter dropping off their voted & certified Absentee Ballot can only deposit their ballot when the Office is open. If the ballot is deposited into the drop box AFTER the open hours, it will NOT be counted.
Thank you!
