Spring General Election: April 4, 2023
If you would like to vote absentee, there are a couple of ways to do so.
- My Vote Wisconsin. To request a ballot be mailed to you, the easiest, and fastest, way is to visit My Vote Wisconsin. Here you can register to vote, find your polling place, see what’s on your ballot, update your name or address, and request an absentee ballot.
- Request an Absentee Ballot by Mail. If you are a registered Wisconsin voter, you can download the Application For Absentee Ballot (EL-121). Just complete the form and mail it to your municipal clerk’s office. Your application must be received by the clerk no later than 5:00 p.m. Thursday, March 30, 2023 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, a copy of your photo ID must accompany your first application by mail. More information about photo ID can be found at www.bringit.wi.gov.
- In-person Absentee Voting. You can vote your ballot in the clerk’s office during regular business hours (Monday – Wednesday 9 am to 12 pm) on Monday, March 27th and Wednesday, March 29th.
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 28 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.
In-Person Absentee Voting (IPAV) for the April 2023 Spring General Election will take place on Monday, March 27th and Wednesday, March 29th from 9 am to Noon on those days only.
