Important Voting Information
With the COVID-19 pandemic creating a rapidly-changing situation, I want to make sure voters have the best possible information leading up to the April 7th General Election. I will be updating this page regularly with the latest updates on how you can safely cast your vote. As always, the Milwaukee Election Commission remains a vital resource for voters.
- The safest way to vote is absentee voting.
- Unfortunately, it is too late to request a ballot if you have not already done so.
- All absentee ballots must be postmarked by TUESDAY, APRIL 7, or dropped off in person by the same date.
- If you want to check the status of your ballot request that has already been made, you can visit myvote.wi.gov
