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 delivered 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. Voters may also request an Absentee Ballot at My Vote Wisconsin.
The deadline to request an absentee ballot is 5:00pm the Thursday before the election, but we recommend making your request as early as possible so there is adequate time to mail the ballot to the Clerk's Office.
Absentee voters casting a ballot in-person in the Clerk's Office must present a photo ID just as they would if they were voting at the polls.
Absentee requests for ballots sent by mail must be accompanied by a photocopy or picture of an acceptable form of voter ID. Once you have sent the Clerk's Office a photocopy of your ID, you will not need to send copies with future requests unless you change your voter registration. Please read your absentee ballot instruction letter very carefully. We want your vote to count!
Ballots will be mailed through the Thursday before the election. Absentee ballots must be received in the Clerk's Office by the end of Election Day.
To request an absentee by mail, download and print the application from the Election Forms page and mail the form to the Village or Town Clerk's Office (include a copy of your Photo ID).

The indefinitely confined category is fitting for voters who, for the foreseeable future, limit travel outside their home because of age, physical illness, or infirmity, or are disabled for an indefinite period. Each voter makes the decision of whether they are indefinitely confined based upon their current situation.
As an indefinitely confined absentee voter, you will continue to receive ballots for every election until you do not return a ballot, or you request to be removed from the indefinitely confined absentee list.
