Remember that Tuesday April 6 is the Spring election! Polls will open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. You may also cast an in-person absentee ballot today or tomorrow; City of Madison absentee voting information, locations and times can be found here. Election ballot will also ask Madison voters four advisory referendum questions about the size of the Madison Common Council, the amount of alderperson pay, the length of alderperson terms, and whether alderpersons should be subject to term limits.
The City of Madison Clerk’s Office has had to move many polling places since the February Spring Primary and the November General Election. Voters are encouraged to check whether their polling place has changed if they plan to vote on Tuesday, April 6.
Eviction Moratorium has been extended to June 30, 2021. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) extended the federal eviction moratorium, which was set to expire on March 31, 2021. The moratorium will remain in effect through June 30, 2021. The latest order specifies that individuals who have already submitted a signed declaration are notrequired to submit a new declaration. It also modifies and clarifies language around applicability of the moratorium. The portion of the order that describes who is protected by the moratorium is attached.
The White House coupled the announcement from CDC with a fact sheet on how the Biden-Harris Administration continues to support renters and landlords during the coronavirus pandemic. Namely, the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (P.L. 117-2) provides an additional funding for jurisdictions to administer the Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP), locally known as the Dane CORE. Property owners and renters are able to apply.
