Today the Wisconsin Elections Commission mailed an informational mailer to approximately 2.6 million Wisconsin voters explaining voting options for the upcoming November 3rd General Election. Included in the mailer is information on how to receive an absentee ballot. The mailing went to registered voters who did not have an absentee ballot request on file for the November 3rd Election as of the end of June. If an absentee ballot request has been submitted since July 1st, a second request does not need to be made. To check the status of an absentee ballot request please see MyVoteWI.gov/MyVoterInfo

If a request is on file there is no need to file a second one.
