Brown County election officials have identified and are addressing a processing error where some mail ballot voters received balloting materials with mismatched outgoing and signature envelopes for the August 13 State Primary Election.  Out of an abundance of caution, it was decided to direct our print vendor to send replacement balloting materials to all mail ballot voters to preserve data integrity and ensure a fair election.   Mail ballot voters must use the replacement ballot, signature envelope and return envelope and return their ballot to the Brown County Auditor-Treasurer’s office by 8 p.m. on Tuesday, August 13, 2024, for their vote to count.  Downloadable Press Release
