[ARCHIVED] Feeling Sick but Still Want to Vote? Want to vote AND avoid crowds?

Please do not come to the Clerk’s Office if you are sick.

We need the staff to be healthy to work the election! 

Who can Request an Absentee Ballot?

Any qualified elector (U.S. citizen, 18 years of age, who has resided in the district in which he or she intends to vote for at least 10 days) who registers to vote is eligible to request an absentee ballot.  Under Wisconsin law, voters do not need a reason or excuse, such as being out of town on Election Day, to vote absentee.  Any voter who prefers to vote by absentee ballot may request one.  You have several options for requesting an absentee ballot and casting your vote.

Request an Absentee Ballot

You can request an absentee ballot be mailed to you through the State website: Your application must be received by the clerk no later than 5:00 p.m. on the Thursday before the election in order for an absentee ballot to be SENT to you.  You will also need to provide a copy of your acceptable photo ID with your request.  If you have not previously provided a copy of photo ID, photo ID must accompany your application. 

Voters who are indefinitely confined, meaning they have a difficult time getting to the polls due to age, illness, infirmity, or disability, may request that a ballot be automatically sent to them for each election.  Indefinitely confined voters do not need to provide a photo ID with their absentee ballot request.

If you do not have access to myvote - you can send your request via email to Please include an upload of your photo ID, your name, where you live, where you want the ballot sent, and for which elections you would like the ballots sent. 

Instructions for Completing Absentee Ballot

Instructions are included in the mailing of the ballot. You will fill out your ballot, place it in the pre-paid envelope, sign the front, have a witness sign and fill out their address, and send it in the mail back to the Clerk. It’s so simple!

Deadlines for Returning Your Absentee Ballot

Your completed absentee ballot must be delivered no later than 8 p.m. on Election Day.  The U.S. Postal Service recommends absentee ballots be mailed one week before Election Day to arrive in time.

In-Person Absentee Voting at your Municipal Clerk’s Office (Early Voting)

You can also vote absentee at City Hall as soon as ballots are available. There will be a notification on the website when ballots are in. No ballots may be taken out of the clerk’s office. Remember to bring your photo ID! Hours may vary due to staffing modifications. 

When can I Vote an In-Person Absentee Ballot?

As soon as we get the ballots from the County! Check our website often. For the April election, we should have them anytime after March 16th! Please do not come to the Clerk’s Office if you are sick. 

Who is my Municipal Clerk?
