Voter registration is required. The residency requirement is 28 days. The registration form is available online at https://myvote.wi.gov/en-us/. Please include a copy of your proof of residency when registering by mail (usually copy of drivers license if it has current address on it.) The new law DOES NOT allow voter registration or absentee voting on the Monday before any election, so plan ahead. You may register on election days.
AT THE POLLS
Once it has been determined you are a registered voter, you will be asked to sign the poll book. If you refuse to sign, you will not be allowed to vote.
ABSENTEE BALLOT REQUESTS
Any qualified elector who is unable or unwilling to appear at the polling place on Election Day may request to vote 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 for at least 10 consecutive days before the election. The elector must also be registered in order to receive an absentee ballot. Proof of identification must be provided before an absentee ballot may be issued.
You must make a request for an absentee ballot in writing or visit the MyVote site and complete the form.
Contact your municipal clerk and request that an application for an absentee ballot be sent to you for the primary or election or both. You may also submit a written request in the form of a letter. Your written request must list your voting address within the municipality where you wish to vote, the address where the absentee ballot should be sent, if different, and your signature. You may make application for an absentee ballot by mail or in person.
Making application to receive an absentee ballot by mail
The deadline for making application to receive an absentee ballot by mail is:
5 pm on the fifth day before the election.
Note: Special absentee voting application provisions apply to electors who are indefinitely confined to home or a care facility, in the military, hospitalized, or serving as a sequestered juror. If this applies to you, contact the municipal clerk regarding deadlines for requesting and submitting an absentee ballot.
Voting an absentee ballot in person
You may also request and vote an absentee ballot in the clerk's office or other specified location during the days and hours specified for casting an absentee ballot in person.
No in-person absentee voting may occur on a legal holiday or the Monday before an election.
The municipal clerk will deliver voted ballots returned on or before Election Day to the proper polling place or counting location before the polls close. Any ballots received after the polls close will not be counted.
The Town Chair, Supervisors, Clerk and Treasurer are elected in April of odd-numbered years and serve a two-year term. Candidates for these positions are nominated by town residents at the town caucus, which is held in January of odd numbered years. All town residents are invited to nominate persons for these positions at the caucus. The date for caucus is set at the December Town Board meeting in even numbered year.
