Absentee Ballots and Mail-In Voting

Any qualified elector who is unable or unwilling to appear at the polling place on Election Day may submit a request to vote an absentee ballot to their municipal clerk.  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 he or she wishes to vote for at least 10 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. 

Absentee Ballot Request
Contact the City Clerk and request that an application for an absentee ballot be sent to you for the primary or election or both.  You may also submit a written request in the form of a letter or you may apply for an absentee ballot online at wwwMyVote.wi.gov.  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 to your municipal clerk for an absentee ballot in person, by mail, by fax, by email or at MyVote.wi.gov.

Receive an Absentee Ballot by Mail
The deadline for making application to receive an absentee ballot by mail is 5:00 p.m. on the fifth day before an election day.  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 City Clerk by phone at 715-486-2023 or by email regarding deadlines for requesting and submitting an absentee ballot.

Voting by Absentee Ballot In-Person
Voting by absentee ballot in-person is available when an election is scheduled.  There is no election at this time.

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's Office at 715-486-2023  regarding deadlines for requesting and submitting an absentee ballot.  

No in-person absentee voting may occur on the day before the election.  The Municipal Clerk will deliver voted ballots returned on or before Election Day to the proper polling place or counting location before the polls close.  Any ballots received after the polls close will not be counted.
