Ways to Cast a Ballot in Wisconsin
1. Vote Absentee by Mail
You must be registered to vote to request an absentee mail ballot. To vote absentee by mail in the Wisconsin August primary, you have until Thursday, August 4th at 5pm to request an absentee ballot. If you need to vote absentee by mail, we recommend requesting an absentee ballot TODAY. It takes time for election officials to process your request and mail you your ballot.
2. Vote Early In-Person from Tuesday, July 26 – Sunday, August 7*
*Note: Early Voting dates differ based on city. See below for Milwaukee, Green Bay, and Kenosha's early vote schedule.
If you live outside of these cities, you can search for your absentee in-person (aka, early voting) options here.
How can you return your absentee ballot?
1. By mail ASAP. Since there will no longer be ballot drop boxes available, make sure you fill out your mail ballot and get it in the mail as soon as you can! All absentee ballots must be received by 8pm on Election Day, Tuesday, August 9th.
2. Bring your ballot to your clerk. We recommend doing this if there is not enough time to mail your ballot back through the USPS. Please note: all ballots must be received by 8pm on Election Day, Tuesday, August 9th. All ballots must be delivered to the clerk by the person whose name is on the ballot. Find your clerk's office address here.
3. Vote in person on Election Day, Tuesday, August 9th.
Polls are open from 7am – 8pm.
If you are in line at 8pm, stay in line! You are still able to vote.
Workers in Wisconsin have the right to request time off (in advance) to vote on Election Day. For more information, visit the Department of Workforce Development's website here.
Rides to the Polls
Rides to the Polls is a program that matches voters with drivers, offering free rides to Milwaukee voters who otherwise would not be able to get to the polls to go vote during Early Voting or on Election Day. Right now, Souls to the Polls is accepting volunteer drivers and soliciting requests for rides. This program is only available in Milwaukee at this time.
