Absentee Voting

State Statutes allow anyone who is unable or unwilling to go to the polls on Election Day to vote by absentee ballot. Voters no longer need to give a reason when requesting an absentee ballot. You can cast an absentee ballot in person or by mail. 

Please note that if you are not already registered to vote, you will need to register to vote before an absentee ballot can be sent to you.

Absentee Voting in Person

In person absentee voting begins on Monday, two weeks before an election, and ends the Friday before the election. You will need to present your Photo ID in order to receive a ballot.

Request a ballot By Mail

Absentee ballots will be mailed to registered voters if a written request and valid photo identification are submitted. Please refer to the Bring It Wisconsin website for more information.

Use the Wisconson Elections Commission downloadable absentee ballot request form or your own written request to obtain an absentee ballot. Mail, fax, or email the form or request to the:

City Clerk’s Office
601 Main Street West
Ashland, WI 54806

The request must be received no later than 5 p.m. on the last Thursday before Election Day in order for an absentee ballot to be mailed. All requests, including faxed or emailed applications, must contain a signature.
