Many voters like the convenience of voting absentee.  If you don’t have transportation or have difficulty getting out, absentee voting can be a great option.  Any registered Wisconsin voter is eligible to request an absentee ballot. If a voter is not registered, they must register to vote before an absentee ballot can be sent to them.   For additional information, call your Municipal clerk or the DRW Voter Hotline.

Here are some tips on Absentee Voting:

  • A voter can apply for and vote their absentee ballot in-person in the clerk’s office or can request an absentee ballot from their municipal clerk.  The request can be made in writing by mail, e-mail, fax or online at a the MyVote Wisconsin website.
  • If you are indefinitely confined due to age, physical illness, infirmity, or disability, you can make a single absentee ballot request to your local municipal clerk to be permitted to vote an absentee ballot automatically at each election, if you are registered to vote
  • To find the dates and hours for in-person absentee voting, voter should contact their municipal clerk.  Find your clerk’s contact information in this directory. 
  • Special provisions are made for hospitalized electors and sequestered jurors to request and vote by absentee ballot on election day.
  • The Disability Vote Coalition transportation and absentee voting fact sheet has additional helpful information.
