Request an Absentee Ballot

You must make a request in writing for an Absentee Ballot to be mailed to you. You may do this online at myvote.wi.gov, by email, or mail us a letter. Acceptable photo ID is required to vote absentee both by mail or in person.  The request must be received no later than 5:00 PM on the Thursday before the election in order for a ballot to be mailed to you.  

You can track the status of your absentee ballot from request to delivery, and also when it has been received back by the Village, on the MyVote Wisconsin website under the My Voter Info tab.  

Deadline to Return your Absentee Ballot

You must return your Absentee Ballot in person or by US mail.   The Postal Service advises allowing 7 days for local delivery and longer for out of the area delivery.  Your completed ballot must be received by Election Day to be counted.  You may not deliver a ballot for another voter.

Can I put my ballot in the drop box?

No. You may NOT use the Village's drop box to return your ballot.  Any ballots returned in the drop box will be mailed back to the voter.  

Important Absentee Ballot Information

BALLOT ENVELOPES ARE CHECKED FOR THE FOLLOWING BY ELECTION INSPECTORS IN ORDER TO BE COUNTED:

  • Voter Signature Required:  Sign the certificate envelope where it indicates Voter Signature. 
  • Witness Signature Required:  Any qualified elector (18 years or older, US Citizen, Not a felon) can sign as your witness including spouses, siblings, adult children, neighbors, or friends.   If you don’t have a witness to sign, we encourage you to vote in-person absentee.
  • Witness Address Required:  Even if the address is the same as yours, you must include the witness address.
  • Evidence of Tampering:  DON’T TAPE YOUR ENVELOPE!  Election Inspectors will view that as evidence that your envelope was opened and resealed as a tampering event and will reject your ballot.   Please use a damp cloth or glue stick to seal your ballot envelope.
