My Vote Wisconsin: A Comprehensive Guide to Veteran Voting in Wisconsin
As a veteran in Wisconsin, exercising your right to vote is an essential way to make your voice heard. My Vote Wisconsin, supported by the State of Wisconsin Elections Commission, is a comprehensive online resource that makes the voting process easy and accessible for all Wisconsin voters, including veterans.
Voting Absentee by Mail
If you are unable to vote in person on Election Day, you can vote absentee by mail. To do this, you must complete an absentee ballot application, which is available on the My Vote Wisconsin website. After your application is approved, you will receive your ballot by mail. It is important to note that absentee ballots must be received by your local election officials by Election Day.
Identifying Your Voting Location
If you plan to vote in person on Election Day, My Vote Wisconsin can help you identify your polling location. You can search for your polling place by entering your address or by using your voter information.
Previewing What Is on Your Ballot
Before you head to the polls, you can use My Vote Wisconsin to preview what is on your ballot. By entering your address, you can view a sample ballot and familiarize yourself with the candidates and issues that will be on the ballot.
Registering to Vote
If you have not yet registered to vote, My Vote Wisconsin provides an easy way to do so. You can register to vote online or by mail, or you can register in person at your local clerk’s office.
Updating Your Name or Address
If you have recently moved or changed your name, you will need to update your voter registration. My Vote Wisconsin makes it easy to do this online, or you can update your registration by mail or in person.
Tracking Your Ballot
After you have voted, you can track the status of your ballot on the My Vote Wisconsin website. This feature allows you to verify that your ballot has been received and counted.
Military and Permanent Overseas Voters
Military and permanent overseas voters have unique rules and additional options for voting. If you are a military or overseas voter, you can receive your absentee ballot electronically, including online, through the My Vote Wisconsin website. Members of the U.S. Military, as well as spouses and dependents of U.S. Military members, are eligible to receive an absentee ballot online until 5 p.m. on Election Day.
