The Wisconsin Elections Commission recently mailed out Absentee Ballot Request forms and information on the three ways you can vote in the election on November 3rd to every registered voter in Wisconsin who did not have an active request on file for the November General Election as of early June. If you already requested to vote absentee on November 3rd, you can throw this mailer away.
NOT SURE HOW TO REQUEST A BALLOT THROUGH THE WISVOTE WEBSITE? PLEASE WATCH THE VIDEO FOR INSTRUCTIONS HERE.
Whether voting absentee or on election day, you will need to provide a photo ID
Deadline for electors to request an absentee ballot for General Election: Thursday, October 29th
Deadline for electors to register to vote (via MyVote website or by mail) for General Election: Wednesday, October 14th
Deadline for electors to register to vote (in Clerk's Office) for General Election: Friday, October 30th
Absentee ballots for the General Election will be mailed out in mid to late September, so please make your request as soon as possible if you have not done so already.
Requesting to vote absentee in any election can be done through the myvotewi.gov website. Please remember to complete all necessary information and upload a copy of your photo ID (NOT A SELFIE! EASIEST EXAMPLE IS TO USE YOUR DRIVERS LICENSE). Registered voters may also send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to request a ballot. In your email you MUST STATE: your name(s); your Three Lakes address; the date(s) you want to vote absentee; the address you want your ballot(s) mailed to; and you must include a copy of your photo ID.
When returning your absentee ballots, ALL highlighted areas must be completed on the envelope or your ballot won't count. This includes your witness' address, even if your witness is your spouse. Absentee ballots must be returned to the Clerk's office no later than 8:00 p.m. on election day to be counted. If you prefer to not send your ballot back through the mail in the postage-paid envelope, you may drop it off in the ballot box in the Clerk's Office hallway during normal business hours prior to the election.
In-Office Absentee Voting will be available BY APPOINTMENT ONLY during the weeks of October 19-23 and October 26-30. Starting on October 5th, please call Kelly at the Town Office 715-546-3316 to schedule your appointment. Remember to bring your photo ID with you for your appointment.
