3. Consider absentee voting before election day
Unexpected things come up. Lines can be long. Don’t take chances.
If You Want to Vote Early/Absentee: Under Wisconsin law, voters do not need a reason or excuse, such as being out of town on Election Day, to vote 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.
If you are a registered Wisconsin voter, you can download the Application For Absentee Ballot (GAB-121) using this link: Wisconsin Absentee Ballot Request
Just complete the form and mail it to your municipal clerk’s office. You can find your clerk at:
Find My Municipal Clerk and performing an address search. Your application must be received by the clerk no later than 5:00 p.m. on the Thursday before the election in order for an absentee ballot to be SENT to you. You will also need to provide a copy of your acceptable photo ID with your request. If you have not previously provided a copy of photo ID, photo ID must accompany your first application by mail. More information about photo ID can be found at www.bringit.wi.gov
4. Be An Informed Voter:
We won’t presume to tell you how to vote. We’re confident you will make the right choices if you get yourself informed. So much is at stake for LGBTQ Americans this year. The 2016 election will be critical for protecting the progress we’ve made on equality and for continued progression toward equality. So don’t stop at just the presidential race. Find out who is on the right side of our issues in your state and in your local community and support those candidates.
