There are several ways registered voters can request absentee ballots. If you have internet access, the easiest way is to sign up at MyVote Wisconsin, https://myvote.wi.gov.
Just look for the “Vote Absentee” button near the top of the page. On a mobile phone, use the menu button in the upper right corner of the website. There is a three-step process that starts with putting in your name and date of birth, followed by requesting your ballot. If you don’t already have a photo ID on file with the clerk’s office, you can upload a copy. Mobile phone users can take a picture and upload it to MyVote. Absentee ballot requests submitted this way go directly to the clerk’s office, and you can track your ballot by returning to the website.
Voters can also request absentee ballots by mailing, emailing or faxing their municipal clerk’s office. These requests must be accompanied by a copy of your photo ID.
The deadline for *registered voters to request an absentee ballot be mailed to you is the Thursday before the election, April 2. However, we are urging voters not to wait, due to possible delays in mail delivery.
Your absentee ballot must be received in the clerk’s office by 8 p.m. on Election Day. Again, we encourage voters to request and return ballots as soon as possible.
