We understand this change can be disruptive; however, we will strive to provide the best customer service possible under these trying circumstances. Election workers can only assist one voter at a time. Please expect wait times. Please also know that, to the extent the procedures followed by the City of Burlington in this revised voting procedure differ from the provisions of the WEC memorandum, the procedures followed and implemented by the City of Burlington shall control. The City of Burlington appreciates your patience and understanding while we maintain the integrity and right to vote.
The City Clerk serves as the chief election official for the City of Burlington, prepares city election ballots, publishes election notices, prepares and distributes absentee ballots, provides information on polling place accessibility to state/federal, and maintains current voter registration files and lists.
