Voters have been able to physically go to their village clerk and fill out a form requesting an absentee ballot be mailed to them. However, starting on Monday, regular absentee voting begins and voters can pick up their ballot in person. Pederson said usually there …

Testing done in advance of the April 3 General Election has discovered a flaw in the election ballots sent to many cities and municipalities in Milwaukee County, but Fox Point and Bayside hadn't received theirs yet so they remain unaffected.

Candidates say it's all about turnout, and both village clerks say they're ready to go.
After weeks of going door-to-door, volunteers tirelessly making phone calls day after day, and both candidates shaking hands and smiling for interviews, Election Day has arrived.

While each has drastically different viewpoints on government, they both agree on one thing, it's all about turnout for this election, and both Fox Point and Bayside village clerks agree, it's going to be one busy day …
