Welcome to the Village of Brooklyn
Located in both Dane and Green Counties Wisconsin, the Village is conveniently located half way between Madison and Janesville off Highway 14. Our neighborly small-town (population 1413) has excellent amenities: a great school system; three Village parks; and a community center, which makes Brooklyn a great place to live!
VILLAGE OF BROOKLYN
2020 SPRING ELECTION & PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY
Hello voters! Did you know you have options to cast your ballot for the April 7, 2020 election (and every election).
For the traditional voter who enjoys the excitement of Election Day, polls will be open from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm at the Brooklyn Community Building. Our election workers will be happy to assist you along with keeping the election facility as clean and safe as possible. Extra efforts will be taken to continually wipe down voting booths and election equipment throughout the day. For voter’s convenience, hand sanitizer and tissues will also be available.
Not up for Election Day? Request an absentee ballot online at www.myvote.wi.gov prior to April 2nd, and a ballot will be mailed to you. Voters may also request a mailed ballot in writing to the Village Clerk but be sure to include a copy of your photo ID with your request. This works great for travelers; those who have a suppressed immune system; or voters who just can’t make it to the Community Building during working hours. Please be sure to allow mailing time so the ballot is returned on or before Election Day.
Voters can also vote in-person via absentee ballot at the Village Hall, 210 Commercial Street, prior to election day from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. In-person voting ends on Friday, April 3rd at 5:00 pm so plan ahead.
If you have questions or need assistance with any of your voting options, please contact us at Brooklyn Village Hall, 608-455-4201.
