Issuing Absentee Ballots

 WHO CAN REQUEST AND RECEIVE AN ABSENTEE BALLOT?

Any qualified elector.  A qualified elector is a United States citizen, 18 years of age or older, who has resided in the district in which he or she intends to vote for at least 28 consecutive days.  The elector must be registered in order to receive an absentee ballot.

Note: Military voters are not required to register (submit a GAB-131) in order to vote.

HOW DOES AN ELECTOR REQUEST AN ABSENTEE BALLOT?

The request is made to the municipal clerk in writing by using the Application for Absentee Ballot (GAB-121 found at http://gab.wi.gov/forms/gab-121-english) or by letter requesting an absentee ballot which substantially provides the information required on the application form.  Military and Overseas electors may also use the Federal Postcard Application (FPCA  –  found at http://www.fvap.gov/citizen-voter/overview) which is a combination registration form and absentee ballot request.  The elector making the request must sign the application.  (If a request is made for more than one person residing at the same address, each person must sign the request.)

WHAT ARE THE DEADLINES FOR MAKING A REQUEST?

By mail – the request must be in the office of the municipal clerk no later than 5:00 p.m. on the 5th day preceding an election*.

In person at the clerk’s office – up to 5:00 p.m. on the Friday preceding the election.

Note: A person cannot request an absentee ballot in person and leave the clerk’s office with the ballot. The ballot is either voted in the clerk’s office, or the clerk must mail the ballot to the elector.

*The deadline for indefinitely confined electors and military electors (not-away) to request an absentee ballot is the 4th day before the election.

*For a federal election, the deadline for military electors who are away from their residence due to active duty to request an absentee ballot is 5:00 p.m. on election day.

*Special provisions are made for hospitalized electors and sequestered jurors to request and vote by absentee ballot on election day.  Wis. Stat. §§ 6.86(1)(b),(3)(a).

WHEN DOES THE CLERK ISSUE THE ABSENTEE BALLOT?

Ballots must be available for absentee voting by mail by the following dates.  An absentee ballot must be sent by these dates to any voter with an application on file.

47 days before any election for national office; 21 days before each other primary and election.  Wis. Stat. § 7.15(1))(cm).

When a request for absentee ballot is made by mail, the absentee ballot must be mailed to the elector within one day of the request.

Absentee voting in person in the clerk’s office begins the third Monday before the election.  Wis. Stat. § 6.86(1)(b).

Voters requesting an absentee ballot in person must cast the ballot in the clerk’s office.  Ballots cannot be hand carried out of the clerk’s office.

Special provisions are made for issuing absentee ballots to residents of a nursing home, qualifying retirement homes and community-based residential facilities. See our manual Absentee Voting in Certain Care Facilities – 2/2012.
