• Deadlines For Making An Absentee Ballot Request? UPDATED
If the request is made by mail it must be in the office of the municipal clerk no later than 5:00 p.m. on the Friday preceding an election [April 3, 2020 @ 5 pm] (This is the last day a clerk can mail an absentee ballot to an elector.)
If the request is made in-person at the clerk's office, it can be made until noon on the Saturday preceding the election [April 4, 2020 @ noon]
On April 3rd, Judge William Conley of the Western District of Wisconsin federal court issued an order related to absentee ballots for next week’s Spring Election and Presidential Preference Primary. The Court ordered the following:
1) The deadline for the receipt of absentee ballots is extended to 4:00 p.m. on Monday, April 13, 2020.
2) A witness signature on the absentee ballot certificate envelope is not required if the absentee voter provides a written affirmation or other statement that they were unable to safely obtain a witness certification despite reasonable attempts to do so, provided the ballot is otherwise valid.
Special provisions are made for hospitalized electors and sequestered jurors to request and vote by absentee ballot on election day.
