Absentee voting now available in Wisconsin

La Crosse, WI (WXOW) -  LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW)-  Monday marks the first day to vote by absentee ballot for the upcoming August 12 primary election in Wisconsin.

People wanting to vote absentee can do so two ways. The first is to vote at the clerk's office in their municipality during the next two weeks.  For example, you can vote in the clerk's office at City Hall anytime during office hours from 8:30 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday. 

You may also make a request for an absentee ballot in writing.  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.  The deadline for making application to receive and absentee by mail is 5:00 pm on Thursday, August 7, 2014.

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 on August 12.

To find the location where to vote, information on absentee ballots, or other voting information, you can go to the My Vote Wisconsin website.
