Absentee Ballots

City of Milwaukee residents have two options to return their absentee ballot to the elections commission. Voters can mail their completed absentee ballot in the certificate envelope sent with the ballot. No postage is required.

The deadline for absentee ballots to arrive by mail at your local election official has been extended to Monday, April 13, 2020.

Witness signature option: The requirement of a witness signature on absentee ballots has been relaxed. Voters can avoid this requirement if they provide a statement with their absentee ballot saying they cannot safely obtain a witness's signature despite reasonable efforts to do so.
