Kinnickinnic is an Ojibwe word meaning “what is mixed” and describes the landscape and residents of this St. Croix County, WI Township.
The Kinnickinnic River, nationally known for trout fishing, starts here before flowing through River Falls and into the St. Croix River. Farmland, pasture, streams and rocky bluffs make up the landscape that is home to 1,759 residents; some tracing their roots back to early settlers and others who are newer to the area, drawn by its natural beauty and close poximity to the Minneapolis/St. Paul metropolitan area. It’s the best of both worlds.
VOTING BY ABSENTEE BALLOT
February Primary Election
February 21, 2017
Any qualified elector who is unable or unwilling to appear at the polling place on Election Day may request to vote an absentee ballot. A qualified elector is any U.S. citizen, who will be 18 years of age or older on Election Day, who has resided in the ward or municipality where he or she wishes to vote for at least 10 consecutive days before the election. The elector must also be registered in order to receive an absentee ballot.
TO OBTAIN AN ABSENTEE BALLOT YOU MUST MAKE A REQUEST IN WRITING.
Contact your municipal clerk and request that an application for an absentee ballot be sent to you for the primary or election or both. You may also request an absentee ballot by letter. Your written request must list your voting address within the municipality where you wish to vote, the address where the absentee ballot should be sent, if different, and your signature.
Included with your request for an absentee ballot, you must include a copy of an acceptable form of Photo ID.
Special absentee voting application provisions apply to electors who are indefinitely confined to home or a care facility, in the military, hospitalized, or serving as a sequestered juror. If this applies to you, contact the municipal clerk.
You can also personally go to the clerk's office or other specified location, complete a written application, provide Photo ID, and vote an absentee ballot during the hours specified for casting an absentee ballot.
