Any qualified elector who is unable or unwilling to appear at the polling place on election day may request to vote an absentee ballot. A qualified elector is any U.S. citizen, who will be 18 years of age or older on election day, who has resided in the ward of the municipality where he or she wishes to vote for at least 28 consecutive days before the election. The elector must also be registered in order to receive an absentee ballot.
For federal elections, absentee ballots will be in the mail beginning 47 days before the election. For elections that do not include federal offices, absentee ballots will be in the mail beginning three weeks before Election Day. All absentee ballots are sent to the polls to be counted on Election Day.
Voters may verify their registration, polling place, sample ballot, and absentee ballot status at My Vote Wisconsin.

Absentee Ballot Deadlines
- The deadline for making applications to vote absentee by mail is 5 p.m. on the 5th day prior to the election.
- The Municipal Clerk will deliver voted absentee ballots returned by the elector to the correct poll location; method for a voter to return absentee ballot is either by mail or personally deliver to the clerk in the clerk’s office no later than 6:00 p.m. on Election Day. This gives the clerk time to secure the ballot and deliver the absentee ballot to the proper poll location. Absentee ballots are NOT PERMITTED to be returned to the poll location on election day. Note: One exception is a personal agent returning an absentee ballot for a hospitalized elector at his/her designated poll location on the date of the election [Wis Stat. §6.86 (3) (c)].
