How will the Village be processing and tabulating results?

  • Absentee ballots will be processed at Central Count at the High School North Gym. All ballots will be tabulated on Election Day. Tabulating will continue until all ballots have been processed.
  • Results will be transmitted to Milwaukee County as the polling locations close. Those results may be shared by the media before all results are transmitted. The results are not final until all ballots at Central Count are tabulated and results are sent to the County and confirmed by the Clerk's office. The best place to get the most accurate results is the Village of Shorewood's website or Facebook page. Results will also be posted on both sets of doors at Village Hall. No result is final until the Clerk uploads the information on the Village website.
