Absentee Voting Rules Changes

As a reminder to voters planning to cast ballots absentee before the election, there are some changes to Wisconsin's absentee voting timetables this year.

In person absentee ballots must be cast between Monday October 22nd and Friday November 2nd at 5:00 PM. That means there will be no voting on the Monday before the election this year.

Sturgeon Bay City Clerk Stephanie Reinhardt says that will allow the Clerk's Office to get their job done with a lot more ease.

The numbers for absentee voting have jumped since the 2000 rule change making it so there is no requirement to list a reason for an early ballot. That's left some using the process as a way to avoid lines.

Ballots aren't counted until Election Day, and Reinhardt says the new rule should make getting ballots in order to be counted a little less difficult.

Whether voting absentee or on Election Day, Reinhardt reminds people to be patient in dealing with lines at their polling place. If you plan to vote absentee by mail, the last day to request a ballot is November 1, and they must be postmarked for no later than November 6th.
