With the April 6th, 2021 Spring Election approaching, there have been many questions regarding various aspects of the voting process. Here are some answers to some frequently asked election questions to help navigate through the voting process to assure your vote counts in 2021.

  1. Only registered voters can cast a ballot. Open registration ends on March 17th. After open registration expires, registration can only take place in the Clerk’s Office until April 2nd, then again on Election Day. To check on voter status or to register to vote, please see My Vote WI.
  2. Absentee ballots are only mailed to those who have a request on file. If voting through the mail-in absentee ballot process, a request for an absentee ballot must be made in writing and a photo ID must be on file. To request a mail-in absentee ballot, visit  My Vote WI.  NOTE: Absentee ballots DO NOT forward. If leaving the state prior to the mailing of the absentee ballots, the mailing address needs to be the address of where you will be to receive it and return it prior to Election Day.
  3. Options to return a mail-in absentee ballot. There are three ways to return a mail-in absentee ballot;
    1. Mail the ballot through the United States Postal Service (USPS). USPS advises mailing at least seven (7) days in advance of Election Day to assure on-time delivery, March 30th.
    2. Dropbox: Only Ledgeview ballots can be returned to the Ledgeview dropbox. Click here for dropbox location and instructions.
    3. Return to the Clerk’s Office at the Community Center, 3700 Dickinson Rd.
