Wisconsin law requires that an absentee ballot be mailed by the voter, or delivered in person by the voter, to the City Clerk unless otherwise qualified by law.

(Wis. Stat. § 6.87(4)(b)1)


A circuit court has interpreted this law to mean that the use of drop boxes located outside of a municipal building is restricted. Therefore the City of Kenosha has removed all ballot drop boxes.


Ballots must be returned by 8:00 pm on election day to be counted. Voters may drop their absentee ballot off in Room 104  of the Kenosha Municipal Building, 625 52nd Street. Or, they may mail their absentee ballot back to the City Clerk’s office. Voters choosing to mail their absentee ballot back should allow enough time for it to be received in the City Clerk’s office by 8:00 pm on Election Day. The post office recommends mailing it seven days in advance.

In Wisconsin you must show a Photo ID in order to receive a ballot. 

Examples of acceptable forms of ID:

  • A Wisconsin DOT-issued license, even if driving privleges are revoked/suspended
  • A Wisconsin DOT-issed ID card
  • Military ID card
  • US Passport book or card
  • Certificate of Naturalization
  • ID issued by a federally recognized Indian Tribe in Wisconsin
  • ID card receipt issued by WIS-DOT (not expired)
  • Veteran Affairs ID card (not expired)
