On election days, residents of the Town of Fremont can vote at the Fremont Town Hall, E7403 Hwy 110 Fremont, Wisconsin.
The polls are open for each election from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
All voters in the Town of Fremont must be registered to vote. You will be required to show a photo ID before voting.
Voters must sign the poll book to obtain a ballot. Voters unable to sign the poll book because of a physical disability are exempt from this requirement. If this applies to you, tell the election officials that you are unable to sign because of a disability. Election officials will write "exempt" in your signature block.
Upon entering the polling place, an elector shall give his or her name and address and show his/her photo identification before being permitted to vote. Upon being permitted to vote, the elector will state a paper ballot or voting machine preference. A pollworker will issue a signed paper ballot and direct the elector to a booth; or a pollworker will direct the elector to the voting machine. The elector shall retire alone to a voting booth or voting machine and cast his or her ballot except that an elector who is a parent or guardian may be accompanied by the elector's minor child or minor ward. An election official may inform the elector of the proper manner for casting a vote, but the official may not in any manner advise or indicate a particular voting choice.
At the election, where touch screen voting systems are used, the elector shall depress the button next to the name of the candidate for whom he or she intends to vote. To vote for a person whose name does not appear on the ballot, the elector shall write the name on a paper ballot, or type in the name of the person of his or her choice in the space provided for a write-in vote.
The vote should not be cast in any other manner. The elector may spoil a TOUCH SCREEN ballot at the voting station, but not more than three ballots shall be issued to any one elector. Sample ballots or other materials to assist the elector in casting his or her vote may be taken into the booth and copied. The sample ballot shall not be shown to anyone so as to reveal how the ballot is marked.
After an official TOUCH SCREEN ballot is marked, or after the paper ballots are marked and deposited in the appropriate ballot boxes, the elector shall leave the polling place promptly.
An elector may select an individual to assist in casting his or her vote if the elector declares to the presiding official that he or she is unable to read, has difficulty reading, writing or understanding English or that due to disability is unable to cast his or her ballot. The selected individual rendering assistance may not be the elector's employer or an agent of that employer or an officer or agent of a labor organization which represents the elector.
Town of Fremont is divided into two wards (Wards 1 & 2) for supervisory districts for County elections. The polling place for all elections and all wards is located at E7403 Hwy 110, Fremont. Voting takes place in the community room.
