U.S. District Judge William Conley declined to postpone the election amidst election-related lawsuits, but gave voters additional time to cast an absentee ballot until 5 pm tonight.
What Wisconsin Voters Need to Know:
- Absentee ballots can be requested until 5 pm on April 3.
- Absentee ballots returned to clerks by 4 pm 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 April 7.
Due to this ruling voters now have an extra 24 hours to request absentee ballots. Make requests at https://myvote.wi.gov/en-US/VoteAbsentee.
Voters also have longer to get their completed absentee ballot back to their municipal clerk.
Curbside voting and early in-person early voting is still available around the state.
