The City Clerk is responsible for ensuring that the electoral process is fair, accurate and impartial.  Typically, even years have four elections and odd years have two elections.

 VOTER REGISTRATION

ABSENTEE VOTING
 
If you would like an absentee ballot, you can do one of the following:  

1.) Visit the City Hall Monday thru Friday between the hours of 8:00 AM and 4:15 PM to vote in person any time after we receive the ballots. You must bring your photo ID.

or

2.) Visit myvote.wi.gov and request a ballot sent to you in the mail. You must upload a copy of your photo ID if you do not already have one on file. The website will tell you if you need one. Please note: if you reside at a care facility that the City visits, you will not receive your ballot in the mail until AFTER we have completed our visits at the care facility.
 

MAKE SURE YOUR ABSENTEE BALLOT COUNTS!

Absentee ballots are rejected for the following reasons:

  • Voter has not signed absentee certificate envelope.
  • Voter has not had a witness sign and address the absentee certificate envelope.
  • Ballot must be received by the Clerk’s Office before 8:00 PM on Election Day.
  • Voter has not registered to vote at their current address.
  • Voter has not sealed the absentee certificate envelope.
  • Voter dies before Election Day.

The City Clerk’s Office strongly encourages absentee voters to take the following precautions:

  • Either vote absentee in the Clerk’s Office, or carefully read the instruction letter that you receive with your absentee ballot.
  • Mail your absentee ballot back to the Clerk’s Office as early as possible.  The ballot must be received by 8:00 PM on Election Day.
  • Make sure you sign the certificate envelope on the line marked “Signature of Voter.”
  • Have your witness sign the certificate envelope on the line marked “Signature and address of Witness.”
  • Make sure the envelope is sealed.
  • If you have moved, register to vote at your new address.  Crossing out the address on your absentee label and writing in your new address does not update your voter registration.

Our goal is for zero absentee ballots to be rejected at the polls.
