If you are unable to get to the polls on Election Day, you can request an absentee ballot to be mailed or vote in person at the Village Hall (2417 Brewery Road) prior to the date of election to vote absentee. Registered voters have until 5 p.m. the Friday prior to the date of the election in order to vote absentee. The last day to vote absentee in person is the Friday prior to the election. Absentee voting begins as soon as ballots are available to the Village.
If you are not already registered, you will need to register to vote before an absentee ballot can be sent to you.
Qualifications to Vote Absentee
An absent elector is any otherwise qualified elector who for any reason is unable or unwilling to appear at the polling place in his or her ward. Any otherwise qualified elector who changes residence within Wisconsin by moving to a different ward or municipality later than 10 days prior to an election may vote an absentee ballot in the ward or municipality where he or she was qualified to vote before moving.
