SUBJECT:     Milestone #3 Checked in SVRS for July 19, 2011 Primary and General Election


The G.A.B. has checked Milestone #3 for the July 19, 2011 Primary Recall Elections in State Senate Districts 12 and 22, and the 2011 Recall Election for State Senate 30. Please read the full memo.


Scheduled Primary and Recall Elections for July 19


Ø      There are two Republican candidates for the 12th and 22nd Senate Districts. They have been added to SVRS and should appear with “Approved-Approved” Status.

Ø      There is only one Republican and one Democratic candidate in the 30th Senate District. No primary will be held, and the July 19 election will be the general election for that district. Because of this change, the 2011 Primary Recall Election for State Senate 30 has been deleted from SVRS.  You must inherit the election called 2011 Recall Election State Senate 30.

Ø      County Clerks should check Milestone #3 after they verify that all contests and candidates appear correctly in the election. After verification, they should notify municipal self-provider clerks to do the same.

Ø      Absentee ballot labels can be generated for official absentee ballots after Milestone #4 is checked at the municipal level.

Ø      If your municipality is not completely in the election district, a filter must be used when generating absentee ballot labels to limit the issuance to just the voters that should get an absentee ballot.


Please refer to the memorandum of June 10, 2011, “Status of Special and Recall Elections in SVRS”, for information regarding inheriting the election. Be sure to choose the district that is in your county.


If there are other contests that are on the July 19 ballot, please contact Angie Steinhauer at (608) 264-6763, or to set up the contest in SVRS.


State Write-In absentee ballots should not be sent for the July 19 elections. Official absentee ballots should be sent for the July 19 elections as soon as they are available.


If you have questions, please contact the G.A.B. Help Desk at (608) 261-2028, or via email at Thank you.
