The General Election is Tuesday, November 3. Voters are encouraged to register in advance of election day, if necessary, and vote absentee prior to Election Day.
Voters must reside at their address for at least 28 days by Election Day to register to vote. Voters who have moved within Wisconsin less than 28 days before the election must vote from their previous address either by absentee ballot or at the polling location. Voters who have moved to Wisconsin from another state less than 28 days before an election are only eligible to vote in Presidential elections.
Any qualified elector who registers to vote is eligible to request an absentee ballot. A qualified elector is a U.S. citizen, 18 years of age, who has resided in the district in which he or she intends to vote for at least 28 days. Under Wisconsin law, voters do not need a reason or excuse, such as being out of town on Election Day, to vote absentee. Any voter who prefers to vote by absentee ballot may request one.
