Voting absentee can take up to two weeks to process, this includes processing your request, the time it takes your ballot to arrive and the time it takes your ballot to travel to your election clerk.
To ensure your vote is counted, the U.S. Postal Service recommends all absentee voting requests be completed by Tuesday, Oct. 20.
Note: In Wisconsin, your ballot must arrive by 8 p.m. on Election Day (Nov. 3) at your municipal clerk’s office.
Visit the Marquette Voter Information page on voting absentee and other questions about voting in Wisconsin. If you’re not from Wisconsin and plan to vote in your home state, visit the U.S. Election Commission’s state-by-state information resource page.
Notary public: Missouri, Oklahoma and Mississippi require the signature of a notary to complete your absentee ballot in those states, while Alaska, North Carolina and Rhode Island accept a notary in place of two witnesses. If you require the signature of a notary to complete your absentee ballot, contact the Information Desk in the AMU at (414) 288-7250.
