Tips About Absentee Voting in Wisconsin from the State League

  1. No excuses needed. Any registered voter in Wisconsin can request an absentee ballot from their municipal clerk.

  2. Plan ahead. Make your request well before the deadline (April 2). 

  3. The U.S. Postal Service recommends you mail back your absentee ballot at least one week before Election Day to arrive in time.Your completed absentee ballot must be delivered no later than 8pm on Election Day.

  4. You must include a copy of your photo ID along with your request. For those making their request online, it's as simple as taking a picture of your license, passport or valid ID on your phone and uploading it to the site. Get in touch with your municipal clerk if you need assistance getting a copy of your photo ID to them.

What Are You Doing This Saturday? 

 

Are you looking for a safe, fun, outdoor event on a beautiful fall day to encourage people to vote?

 

This Saturday, October 10, the UU and Driftless Voter Coalition are organizing a caravan of vehicles to drive through neighborhoods of La Crosse which historically have a lower voting turnout.

Meet in the parking lot of the First Congregational Church at 2503 Main Street. Come with your vehicle decorated with voting messages or get decorations there.

 

Participants will gather at 3:30 to decorate, get the route, and line up. The caravan will begin at 4:00, led by a large RV driven by Tim Cordon of Building Unity Team, a Madison-based organization that is working to get out the vote across the state.
