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.

VOTING BY ABSENTEE BALLOT

Any qualified elector who is unable or unwilling to appear at the polling place on Election Day may submit a request to vote an absentee ballot to their municipal clerk.  A qualified elector is any U.S. citizen, who will be 18 years of age or older on Election Day, who has resided in the ward or municipality where he or she wishes to vote for at least 28 consecutive days before the election.  The elector must also be registered in order to receive an absentee ballot.  Proof of identification must be provided before an absentee ballot may be issued.

You must make a request for an absentee ballot in writing or online at MyVote.wi.gov.

Contact your municipal clerk and request that an application for an absentee ballot be sent to you for the primary or election or both.  You may also submit a written request in the form of a letter or you may apply for an absentee ballot online at MyVote.wi.gov.  Your written request must list your voting address within the municipality where you wish to vote, the address where the absentee ballot should be sent, if different, and your signature.  You may make application to your municipal clerk for an absentee ballot in person, by mail, by fax, by email or at MyVote.wi.gov.

Making application to receive an absentee ballot by mail

The deadline for making application to receive an absentee ballot by mail is:

5:00 p.m. on the fifth day before the election, April 1, 2021.

Note:    Special absentee voting application provisions apply to electors who are indefinitely confined to home or a care facility, in the military, hospitalized, or serving as a sequestered juror.  If this applies to you, contact the municipal clerk regarding deadlines for requesting and submitting an absentee ballot.

Voting an absentee ballot in person

You may also request and vote an absentee ballot in the clerk’s office or other specified location during the days and hours specified for casting an absentee ballot in person.

VOTER REGISTRATION DRIVES – BEWARE!!

Voter registration drives will increase in 2021.  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
