Absentee ballots available statewide for August Partisan Primary

Many places offer in-person absentee voting

MADISON, Wis. - Absentee ballots are officially available statewide for the Aug. 14 Partisan Primary, officials announced Friday.

According to a Wisconsin Elections Commission release, many municipalities have in-person absentee voting during regular business hours.

Meagan Wolfe, the commission's interim administrator, said voters who want to cast an absentee ballot in person should contact their municipal clerk's office to find hours and days open for in-person absentee voting.

“If your municipal clerk doesn’t have regular hours scheduled, you can make an appointment to vote absentee," Wolfe said.

The deadline to request a mailed absentee ballot is Aug. 9. The commission recommends making a request early to account for delays in mail delivery.

Ballots need to be returned to the clerk's office by 8 p.m. on election day.

The last legal day for in-person absentee voting is Aug. 11, though many places' last day will be Aug. 10. Cities like Madison offer multiple locations for voting.

Voters will choose major party nominees for governor, lt. governor, secretary of state, state treasurer, U.S. senator, representative in Congress, state senator and state representatives. Some counties will have primaries for sheriff, clerk of circuit court, coroner and local referenda.
