How to vote absentee
You can use your absentee ballot to vote in person or by mail. Follow the instructions given to you in the ballot. Remember: you must vote in the presence of one adult witness (who is not a candidate for the election); the witness must sign the certificate and provide their address.
 
  • In-person (aka early voting): Contact your municipal clerk’s office (or locate their web site) to learn about your community’s specific early voting options, locations, and hours of operation. You can find your municipal clerk’s contact information here: https://myvote.wi.gov/en-US/MyMunicipalClerk.
  • By mail: Your completed absentee ballot must be delivered—not just mailed—by no later than 8pm on Election Day. The U.S. Postal Service recommends absentee ballots be mailed one week before Election Day to arrive in time.
