Pleasant Prairie Village Hall installs new ballot drop-off box
PLEASANT PRAIRIE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Pleasant Prairie voters who prefer to deliver absentee ballots in person can now place them in the new ballot drop-off box, located on the north side of Village Hall, 9915 39 Avenue.
The new drop off location was added Wednesday, July 15. Officials say this gives residents the option to hand-deliver their absentee ballots from the convenience of a vehicle. However, voters can still mail in a completed absentee ballot or submit them directly to the Village Clerk's Office during regular business hours, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The delivery area is being monitored by the Village Clerk's office, who is servicing and checking it multiple times a day. The ballot drop can hold up to 370 ballots and is available to voters at any time of the day or night during election periods. Postage is not required.
"The new ballot drop box provides residents with a secure delivery option that limits exposure," said Jane Snell, Village Clerk. "One significant advantage to dropping off an absentee ballot in-person is that it eliminates the possibility of a ballot arriving late and not being counted. The ballot drop location will only be open and available during elections. It will be closed and locked at the close of polls on election day at 8:00 p.m."
