Absentee Voting

Please note that Wisconsin law requires you to submit a copy of your photo ID to us before we can mail you an absentee ballot.

Anyone planning on being out of town or unable to make it to the polling place on election day can cast an absentee ballot in the Clerk’s office, or request a ballot in writing up until the Thursday before an election. Absentee voting will be conducted in the clerk’s office the two weeks prior to an election.
