Wisconsin Voter Update

Breaking Election Updates. A federal judge just ruled on election-related lawsuits. U.S. District Judge William Conley declined to postpone the election, but gave voters additional time to cast an absentee ballot.

What Wisconsin Voters Need to Know:

  • Absentee ballots can be requested until 5:00 p.m. on Friday, April 3.
  • Absentee ballots returned to clerks by 4:00 p.m. on April 13 will be counted.
  • Voters can provide a written affirmation statement that they could not safely obtain a witness signature due to COVID-19 fears.
  • Election still scheduled to take place on Tuesday, April 7.

Due to this ruling you now have an extra 24 hours to request your absentee ballot. Make your request at

You also have longer to get your completed absentee ballot back to your municipal clerk.

Curbside voting and early in-person early voting is still available around the state.
