Voters who are Indefinitely confined, meaning they have a difficult time getting to the polls due to age, illness, infirmity, or disability, may request that a ballot be automatically sent to them for each election. Indefinitely confined voters do not need to provide a photo ID with their absentee ballot request. If you or someone you know are indefinitely confined you will make this designation in box 6 of the Application for Absentee Ballot (PDF).

Email or Fax 

Regular Wisconsin voters may also request that ballot be sent to them by sending an email or fax to their clerk. Your request must also include a copy of your photo ID, if not previously provided. This request must be made no later than 5:00 p.m. on the Thursday before the election in order for an absentee ballot to be sent to you.

Clerk's Office

In-person absentee voting (also known as early voting) is available at the dates and times noted on the main Election page. You will need to show your acceptable photo ID for voting when voting in-person.

Deadline

The deadline for returning your absentee ballot is 8 p.m. on Election Day

Instructions for Completing Absentee Ballot: Uniform Instructions for Absentee Voters (PDF).

Military and Overseas

Military and Overseas voters have additional options for absentee ballot delivery. Military and permanent overseas voters do not need to provide a photo ID with their request.

Remember, you can only vote once!

Please note: In 2011 the Legislature passed Act 227, which prohibits a voter who has returned a completed absentee ballot from voting at the polling place on Election Day. Previously, voters who cast an absentee ballot and changed their minds could go to the polling place and vote on Election Day, and their absentee ballot would not be counted. This is no longer an option.
