Permanent Early Voting Location
Fremont Township was asked to provide a location for early voting this last election and the only room we had available was in our Highway Department. While it worked, it was quite cramped. We have worked with County Clerk Carla Wyckoff to move the early voting location permanently to the lower level of the Fremont Township Administrative office for future elections.
Message From Assessor Joe Herchenbach
Our office is receiving calls asking when the blue cards will be mailed? We don't have an exact date yet, but it should be sometime in June. As you know, once the blue cards are mailed, you only have 30 days to file an appeal. I will inform you through this email newsletter as soon as I have the exact date.

If you find an inaccuracy on the blue card, before incurring the expense of an attorney please call me at 847 223-2846 so that we can discuss the issue. As your assessor, if there are inconsistencies or errors, I want to assist you locally first.
