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 written request 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, Ruth Stern, W8378 760th 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 ballot hours have been established as Monday- Friday two weeks prior to the election date from 8:00 A.M. – 7:00 P.M. In person absentee balloting is only available by appointment with the Town Clerk at 715-425-7373. No in-person absentee ballots can be cast on the Monday right before the election day.

Voter Registration
