UNSOLICITED VOTER REGISTRATION FORMS AND ABSENTEE BALLOT REQUEST

Special interest groups mail out voter registration and absentee ballot application forms that look like the they originate from the Clerk/Treasurer’s Office. 2020 is a Presidential election year, which means you will soon be finding voter registration forms and absentee ballot request forms in your mailbox. These mailings are not from your municipal Clerk/Treasurer. The Town will only mail documents that you request. These unsolicited voter registration forms and absentee ballot requests often contain pre-filled voter information that is inaccurate. To ensure you are properly registered or to apply for an absentee ballot, please visit https://myvote.wi.gov or contact the Town at 715-325-8023.
