In order to vote absentee, you must be a registered voter in the Village of Chenequa. If your are not registered, please print and complete the Wisconsin voter registration form. You must also now provide a copy of your Voter ID with your absentee ballot application. To explore your options on how to register, please see our elections page.
You don’t need a reason to be an absentee voter. Every Registered Wisconsin voter has the ability to request an absentee ballot.
You may also request one via email. Email your Village Clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org. One email per family member is requested and the requestor must be the one emailing the Village Clerk. A family member cannot make the request for another family member.
Please make a color copy of your Voter ID (WI Driver’s License) and include it with your application.
Once the application and Voter ID is received, a ballot will then be sent to you no sooner than the third Monday prior to the election.
Don’t wait until the deadline to request your absentee ballot. It takes time for election officials to process voter requests and mail out ballots. Once your request is submitted, track your request until your ballot arrives.
Before you begin, line up a witness who can verify that you filled out your own ballot. Choose an adult U.S. Citizen who is not a candidate in the upcoming election. Next, fill out your ballot carefully. Once your ballot is complete, place it in the certified envelope. Then seal and sign the certificate envelope, and make sure your witness adds their address and signature, too.
If you make a mistake or change your mind about a selection, contact your municipal clerk’s office for help.
Mail it back using the pre-addressed, postage paid envelope included with your ballot packet. The USPS recommends mailing your ballot back at least 7 days before Election Day. Once your ballot is in the mail, you may not vote in person at the polls. Verify your completed ballot was received by tracking your ballot. Ballots must be returned to the Village Hall by 8pm on Election Day in order for the ballot to count.
Go to your clerk’s office to drop off your ballot or vote in-person absentee. The Village of Chenequa provides a secure dropbox for after hours drop off.
In-person absentee voting will take place in the Village of Chenequa Village Hall. You may vote in-person absentee no earlier than 14 days before the election.
