Absentee Voting Information - November 3, 2020

As the General and Presidential Election soon approach the Clerk’s Office would like to share a few important reminders regarding absentee voting. 

Requesting an Absentee Ballot
There is still time to request an absentee ballot for the November 3, 2020 Election. Registered voters are required to complete the Wisconsin Absentee Ballot Request Form to receive a ballot. Voters may request an absentee ballot in one of the following ways:

  • Email –  request that the Clerk’s Office email the form 
  • In-person – visit the Clerk’s Office to complete the form in-person
With the help of City staff, the Clerk’s office has been working diligently to process almost 3,000 absentee ballots. Voters can expect to receive their absentee ballot early October and are encouraged to return their completed ballot as soon it is received.
