Under Wisconsin law, voters do not need a reason to vote absentee. Any voter who prefers to vote by absentee ballot may request one. You have several options for requesting an absentee ballot and casting your vote.
Voters will be required to show proper photo identification (ID).

Absentee ballot requests will be processed within 24 hours of receiving the request and acceptable photo ID.
All absentee ballots are sent to the polls to be counted on Election Day.
For federal elections, absentee ballots will be in the mail beginning 47 days before Election Day. For elections that do not include federal offices, absentee ballots will be in the mail beginning three weeks before Election Day.
Voters may verify their registration, polling location, sample ballot, and absentee ballot status at MyVote Wisconsin.
