Time Extended to Request Absentee Ballot

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

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.
