Polling Place Changes
The Board recently amended the Village's ward map upon completion of the 2020 Census. As part of this process staff proposed a reduction in the number of polling places in order to provide cost savings to the Village and make the election process more efficient. All registered voters will be receiving a mailing from the Village providing information on their polling place for the 2022 elections. The Village will now have 2 polling places - Greendale High School and Highland View Elementary. All residents who live east of Loomis Road will vote at Highland View and all residents that live west of Loomis Rd will vote at the High School. You can always find your polling place here: https://myvote.wi.gov/en-us/Find-My-Polling-Place Beyond the letter there will also be reminders of this change published in the Village's newsletter, social media and signs posted at the prior locations on the day of the election directing people to their new polling location.
