Witness Requirements: Each absentee ballot is required to have the voter signature, witness signature and witness address on the return envelope in order to be counted. State law requires that the voter must show their unmarked ballot to their witness prior to marking their ballot in their presence (Wis. Stat. §6.87(2)). The witness then signs the certification indicating the proper voting procedure has been followed. If a ballot has not been voted in the presence of the witness, a witness cannot certify that the unmarked ballot was shown to them. The voter should request a replacement ballot from their municipal clerk in these situations.

Apply during In-Person Absentee Voting period. This period begins Tuesday, October 20, 2020, conducted at the clerk’s home office. The process will be conducted while you remain in your vehicle. Call to schedule an appointment at 920-235-7771 and further instructions will be provided.

In-Person Absentee Voting means when you arrive you will fill out an absentee application form, show photo ID, make your selection(s) on ballot, seal and sign the absentee envelope. The clerk is your witness. The absentee stays with the clerk to date record and file.
