This year, election departments are facing an unprecedented challenge of administering safe and secure elections that provide healthy voting options to the public. To meet this challenge, the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL) is providing support to Wisconsin and Minnesota election officials so no voter is required to make a choice between their health and their ability to vote. This grant will ensure that polling places are open and following the latest public health guidelines, provide options for voters to easily and securely return absentee ballots, and make certain that the incredible people who step up to serve as poll workers are protected and well compensated for their service. CTCL is already partnered with the five largest cities in Wisconsin to deliver a smooth voting process that inspires confidence.
