OFFICE OF THE DANE COUNTY CLERK
 
TO THE VOTERS OF DANE COUNTY:
 
Notice is hereby given of a spring primary election to be held in Dane County on February 16, 2016 at which the officers named below shall be nominated.  The names of the candidates for each office, whose nominations have been certified to or filed in this office, are given under the title of the office, each in its proper column, together with the questions submitted to a vote, for a referendum, if any, in the sample ballot below.
 
INFORMATION TO ELECTORS
 
Upon entering the polling place, a voter shall state his or her name and address, show an acceptable form of photo identification and sign the poll book and show acceptable proof of identification before being permitted to vote.  If a voter is not registered to vote, a voter may register to vote at the polling place serving his or her residence, if the voter presents proof of residence in a form specified by law.  Where ballots are distributed to electors, the initials of two inspectors must appear on the ballot.  Upon being permitted to vote, the voter shall retire alone to a voting booth and cast his or her ballot except that a voter who is a parent or guardian may be accompanied by the voter's minor child or minor ward.  An election official may inform the voter of the proper manner for casting a vote, but the official may not in any manner advise or indicate a particular voting choice.
 
 
Where Optical Scan Voting is Used
The voter shall fill in the oval or connect the arrow next to the name of the candidate of his or her choice for each office for which he or she intends to vote.  To vote for a person whose name does not appear on the ballot, the voter shall write in the name of the person of his or her choice in the space provided for a write-in vote, and fill in the oval or connect the arrow next to the write-in line.  On referendum questions, the voter shall fill in the oval or connect the arrow next to "yes" if in favor of the question, or the voter shall fill in the oval or connect the arrow next to "no" if opposed to the question.
 
When using an electronic ballot marking device (“Automark”) to mark an optical scan ballot, the voter shall touch the screen at the name of the candidate of his or her choice for each office for which he or she intends to vote.  To vote for a person whose name does not appear on the ballot, the voter shall type in the name of the person of his or her choice in the space provided for a write-in vote.  On referendum questions, the voter shall touch the screen at "yes" if in favor of the question, or the voter shall touch the screen at "no" if opposed to the question.
  
 
 
 
 
After Voting the Ballot
After an official optical scan ballot is marked, it shall be inserted in the security sleeve so the marks do not show.  The voter shall insert the ballot in the voting device and discard the sleeve, or deliver the ballot to an inspector for deposit.  The voter shall leave the polling place promptly.
 
A voter may select an individual to assist in casting his or her vote if the voter 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 voter's employer or an agent of that employer or an officer or agent of a labor organization which represents the voter.
 
The following is a sample of the official ballot:  Sample Ballot
