ABSENTEE VOTING

Requests for Absentee Ballots

Before an absentee ballot can be issued there needs to be a written request for the ballot and a photo ID submitted. The best way to request an absentee ballot is through myvote.wi.gov. Written requests for the ballot should include your town address and the address you would like your ballot mailed to. Requests for absentee ballots can be submitted to: Town Clerk, Sarah Meyer, W9015 770th Ave., River Falls, WI 54022 or e-mail: [email protected]. The last day that absentee ballots can be mailed out to the elector is the Thursday preceding the Tuesday election date. Ballots can usually be mailed out starting a month prior to the election upon receipt of the written request and photo ID. Please request absentee ballots as soon as possible.

In-person absentee ballots can be completed by appointment, Monday- Friday two weeks prior to the election date from 8:00 A.M. – 7:00 P.M.
