Absentee Voting

Any qualified elector, unable to get to the polling place on election day may request 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 or municipality where he or she wishes to vote at least 10 days before the election. If voter registration is required the elector must also be registered.

 

You need to register to vote before an absentee ballot can be sent to you.

 

You can download an application for absentee ballot (GAB-121) at http://gab.wi.gov/elections-voting/voters/absentee. Please complete the form and mail it to your municipal clerk’s office. The application must be received by the clerk no later than 5 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 1 in order for an absentee ballot to be mailed to you.

 

A voter may request that a ballot be sent to them by sending an e-mail or fax to their municipal clerk. Before the ballot can be counted on election day, the municipal clerk must have received a request from the voter with an original signature. You should print your e-mailed request, sign it, and return it with your ballot. This request must be made no later than 5 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 1 before in order for an absentee ballot to be mailed to you.

 

The completed ballot must either be delivered to the clerk no later than election day or postmarked no later than election day and received by the municipal clerk no later than 4 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 9.

In-person absentee voting runs for two weeks before an election, ending at 5 p.m. or the close of business -- whichever is later -- on Friday, Nov. 2. Please check with your municipal clerk for regular office hours. If you apply for an absentee ballot in your municipal clerk's office, you must vote immediately, seal your ballot in the proper envelope, and return it to a member of the clerk's staff.  No ballots may be taken from the clerk's office.

 

A list of municipal clerks is available online at http://gab.wi.gov/elections-voting/voters/absentee.

 

Please note:  2011 Act 227 prohibits a voter who has voted and returned an absentee ballot from voting at the polling place on election day.
