Voter Guide

Voter Guide Update – 3/29 

The American people are resilient and strong – we have maintained our democracy through war and peace, economic downturn and prosperity, and in previous moments of public health crisis. We can meet that same challenge today and continue to uphold the core functions and values of our democracy. Voting is at the very heart of who we are as a society. There is no more important duty for us as Americans. 

More information on how to vote in states with upcoming primaries is below. We’ll keep this page updated as there are changes to voting procedures. 

Wisconsin 

The Wisconsin primary is currently scheduled to take place on Tuesday, April 7

Any registered Wisconsin voter may request a vote-by-mail ballot online (through the state’s website, https://myvote.wi.gov/en-us/) or by email, fax or mail to their local election clerk (whose contact information may be found at https://elections.wi.gov/clerks/directory).  A request for a vote-by-mail ballot should be made as soon as possible, and no later than Thursday, April 2 at 5 PM.  

Vote-by-mail ballots must be delivered to your municipal clerk by Tuesday, April 7th at 8pm.  The U.S. Postal Service recommends mailing absentee ballots one week prior to Election Day to ensure a timely arrival.  Municipal clerks also offer drop-off locations, including curbside drop-offs in some places (including in Milwaukee and Madison); contact your local clerk for more information (https://elections.wi.gov/clerks/directory).  

Any Wisconsin voter who has not yet registered now may do so online through March 30 through the Wisconsin Board of Elections at https://myvote.wi.gov/en-US/VoterRegistration; in person at their local clerk’s office through April 3; or at their polling place on election day.

Local officials have announced that certain in-person voting locations will be relocated or consolidated for in-person voting on election day.  If you are able to request a vote-by-mail ballot, we encourage you to do so. Information about your in-person polling place is available at https://iwillvote.com/wi.
