Absentee Vote Drop-box

The City of Antigo has implemented a completely contactless and secure method for you to drop off your absentee vote.  The drop slot is located on the south side of the Antigo Fire Department building.

PLEASE DO NOT BLOCK FIRE DEPARTMENT DOORS WHEN DROPPING OFF BALLOTS.  

What is an Absentee Ballot Drop Box?

A ballot drop box provides a secure and convenient means for voters to return their by mail absentee ballot. A drop box is a secure, locked structure operated by local election officials. Voters may deposit their ballot in a drop box at any time after they receive it in the mail up to the time of the last ballot collection Election Day.
Ballot drop boxes can be staffed or unstaffed, temporary or permanent.
Some voters prefer to deliver their by mail absentee ballots to a drop box rather than sending them back through the mail. These voters may be motivated by lack of trust in the postal process, fear that their ballot could be tampered with, or concern that their information will be Exposed. Voters may also be concerned about ensuring that their ballot is returned in time to be counted.
Ballot drop boxes and drop-off locations allow voters to deliver their ballots in person. More importantly, the availability of ballot drop boxes and drop-off locations ensures that even voters who wait until the last minute to return their ballot or who receive their requested ballot in the mail too late to return it via USPS will have timely options to return their ballots.

DO YOU NEED TO REGISTER TO VOTE, CHANGE YOUR ADDRESS, OR CHANGE YOUR NAME?

Visit MyVote Wisconsin (myvote.wi.gov).  You can avoid having to wait to register on Election Day and complete the forms ahead of time.  If you have a valid, unexpired Wisconsin Driver License or Wisconsin State ID Card, you can register online on the Wisvote system as long as your name, date of birth, and address on file with the Wisconsin Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) matches.

If you do not have the information necessary to register online, you can print the form and deliver it or mail it to the City Clerk, City of Antigo, 700 Edison Street, Antigo, WI  54409.  You will need a proof of residence document to do so.

DO YOU WANT TO REQUEST AN ABSENTEE BALLOT?

You can request an absentee ballot for the 2020 Elections after January 1, 2020.  You can request a ballot for all 2020 elections or list the specific election dates that you would like to vote absentee.  If you are indefinitely confined due to age, illness, infirmity, or disability you can request ballots be sent to you for every election until you are no longer confined or fail to return a ballot.

Requests can be completed at myvote.wi.gov.  The system will prompt you to upload an acceptable photo identification if there is not one on file.  If you cannot do this online, you can follow the manual process and either e-mail, mail, or drop off your request at the City Clerk’s Office.

VOTER REGISTRATION DRIVES – BEWARE!!

Voter registration drives will increase in 2020.  These organizations are NOT affiliated with the City of Antigo and while most organizations are legitimate, this is also an area of opportunity for scammers.  Be aware that voter registration requires personal information such as your date of birth and driver’s license number.   NEVER give personal information to anyone you do not know and trust.  The safest means to register to vote includes the following:

On-line at MyVote Wisconsin

By mail with proof of residency to: 700 Edison Street, Antigo, WI  54409

In person at your Municipal Clerk’s Office:  Open Monday – Thursday 7:30 am – 4:30 pm and Friday 7:30 am – Noon

In person at City Hall on Election Day 7:00 am – 8:00 pm

Note:  All options require acceptable proof of residency.  Links to voter information can be found on the right side of this page.
