Deadline to request absentee ballot for Tuesday’s primary election approaches
MADISON, Wis. — If you haven’t requested an absentee ballot yet for Tuesday’s spring primary election, there’s still a few hours left to do so.
Absentee ballots must be requested by 5 p.m. today, otherwise you will have to vote in-person. Requests can be made online at the MyVote Wisconsin website.
In addition, the deadline to register to vote before Election Day is Friday, although you can still register in-person on Election Day.
Absentee votes have to be returned by 8 p.m. on Election Day, April 6. Since Election Day is just a few days away, Madison election officials are recommending using one of the city’s secure drop boxes or dropping it off in-person at an absentee voting site. Absentee ballots can also be dropped off in-person on Election Day.
As of Thursday afternoon, about 54.5% of the absentee ballots already sent out in the city had been returned.
