Anyone planning on being out of town or unable to make it to the polling place on election day can cast an absentee ballot in the Clerk’s office, or request a ballot in writing up until the Thursday before an election. Absentee voting will be conducted in the clerk’s office the two weeks prior to an election.

Who and What Are on the Ballot?
Here is a sample ballot.
Unless you’ve been hiding under the rock at the high school, you know we’ll be choosing the next Wisconsin governor and a United States senator, among several statewide races.
We are also choosing our next representative in the state Assembly and Senate. (I’m all in for Nathan Jurowski and Chris Larson in those races, as you might have guessed.)
Also on the ballot: non-binding referendum questions on “semi-automatic military-style firearms” and marijuana. And you will note South Milwaukee is now a part of the First Congressional District, due to gerrymandering; Republican incumbent Bryan Steil and Democrat Ann Roe are on the ballot.
