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


What is Vitals™?

Vitals™ is a service designed to dramatically improve interactions between first responders, educators, providers and individuals with physical, behavioral, mental, or developmental conditions through the use of signaling a beacon and smart phone app technologies. The Vitals™ service is comprised of apps; designed to create safer environments for individuals living with invisible or visible conditions and disabilities and to give responders, educators and providers a deeper understanding about the individuals they serve.

How does Vitals™ Work?

A individual using the Vitals™ service carries a beacon that is synced to secure information about that individual. When an authorized first responder, educator or provider comes within 80 feet of the individual, they receive an alert through their smartphone via their Vitals™ App notifying them about that individual and their specific needs. The Vitals™ profile provides information to help these authorized users make informed decisions on how to safely interact and communicate with individuals.
