VOTING BY ABSENTEE BALLOT
Any qualified elector who is unable or unwilling to appear at the polling place on Election Day may request to vote an absentee ballot. A qualified elector is any U.S. citizen, who will be 18 years of age or older on Election Day, who has resided in the ward or municipality where they wish to vote for at least 28 consecutive days before the election. The elector must also be registered in order to receive an absentee ballot. Proof of identification must be provided before an absentee ballot may be issued.
YOU MUST MAKE A REQUEST FOR AN ABSENTEE BALLOT IN WRITING.
Contact your municipal clerk and request that an application for an absentee ballot be sent to you for the primary or election or both. You may go to www.myvote.wi.gov to request an absentee ballot be sent to you. You may also submit a written request in the form of a letter. Your written request must list your voting address within the municipality where you wish to vote, the address where the absentee ballot should be sent, if different, and your signature. You may make application for an absentee ballot by mail or in person.
MAKING APPLICATION TO RECEIVE AN ABSENTEE BALLOT BY MAIL.
The deadline for making application to vote absentee by mail is 5:00 PM on the fifth day before the election, Thursday, March 28, 2024.
Note: Special absentee voting application provisions apply to electors who are indefinitely confined to home or a care facility, in the military, hospitalized, or serving as a sequestered juror. If this applies to you, contact the municipal clerk regarding deadlines for requesting and submitting an absentee ballot.
