DISABILITY ACCESS:
Our polling places have been audited for accessibility.  Nonetheless, voters with health issues, mobility issues, a disability, or difficulty waiting in line may vote from the curb of their polling place. Send someone in to the polling place to notify the poll workers that you are a curbside voter. You may also use the doorbell which is located on the "curbside voting" sign near the entrance of the polling place. If you do not have someone to send in to the polling place, contact the Clerk’s Office at  or 262-653-4020 to make arrangements to vote curbside

Under Wisconsin law, voters do not need a reason or excuse, such as being out of town on Election Day, to vote early (absentee).  Any voter who prefers to vote by absentee ballot may request one.  You have several options for requesting an absentee ballot and casting your vote. 

A valid photo ID is required for absentee voting.
