Absenteer Voting Emblem

The Clerk’s Office would like all voters to know how to request an absentee ballot.  The fastest method for requesting an absentee ballot is using https://myvote.wi.gov/en-us/.  Other methods for requesting an absentee ballot can found here: https://cityofsunprairie.com/232/Absentee-Voting   

Please note that absentee requests CANNOT be made over the phone.

Information on photo ID requirements for absentee voters can be found below.

Regular Voters (including Temporary Overseas Voters)

Regular absentee voters, including those temporarily overseas, are required to provide acceptable photo ID before being sent an absentee ballot. However, once photo ID is provided, an absentee voter does not need to resubmit photo ID when requesting an absentee ballot by mail for future elections, as long as they have not moved or changed their name.

Military and Permanent Overseas Voters

Military and permanent overseas voters are exempt from the photo ID requirement. If you are a military voter or are registered to vote as a permanent overseas voter, you are not required to provide photo ID.

Indefinitely Confined Voters

Indefinitely confined voters are persons who, because of age, physical illness, infirmity, or disability, are eligible to receive ballots automatically for all future elections. If you requested absentee ballots as an indefinitely confined voter, you are not required to provide photo ID.

Confidential Voters

Confidential Voters are exempt from the photo ID requirement. If you are currently qualified for a confidential listing, you are not required to provide photo ID.

City of Sun Prairie Offering Curbside Voting

The City of Sun Prairie has reserved four parking spots outside City Hall for curbside voting starting Friday, March 20th. Voters who are high-risk for COVID-19 can register to vote and/or cast their ballot from their vehicle. High-risk populations include older adults and people with chronic health conditions. Curbside voting will be offered during voting hours until April 3rd.

Signs will be posted at each of the designated stalls prompting voters who need to use the curbside voting option to ring the doorbell or call the City Clerk’s Office at 837-2511.

The City Clerk’s Office is offering this option to those voters who are at high-risk for the virus COVID-19. For those not at high risk, in-person absentee voting is still available in the Clerk’s Office.

Voters are also able to request absentee ballots to be sent to them through the mail at myvote.wi.gov .  The deadline to request an absentee ballot to be sent to you is Thursday, April 2nd.
