The Spring Election Fact Sheet will give you the basics for the April 2nd election.
What’s on the Ballot?
Voters will elect a Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice. Check out the fact sheet to learn why the Wisconsin Supreme Court is so important. Many Wisconsin voters will vote for circuit court judges, and for important local elections: school board members, mayor, city alderpersons, village board trustees, and city, village and clerks or clerk/treasurers. Voters in Assembly District 64 in parts of Kenosha and Racine counties will vote to nominate candidates for a special election on April 30 for a new Assembly Representative. See what’s on your ballot at the My Vote Wisconsin website.

When and where can I vote absentee?
Thursday, March 28 is the last day for most voters to request an absentee ballot from their municipal clerk’s office. Friday, March 29 is the last day for voters who are indefinitely confined to their homes due to age, illness, disability or infirmity to request an absentee ballot. Many communities offer in-person absentee voting (also known as early voting) until the Friday before the Election. Call the municipal clerk for information about absentee voting/early voting.
Know Your Rights as a Voter with a Disability
All polling places must be accessible for people with disabilities, including an accessible route to enter the building. All polling places are required by law to have an accessible voting machine. If you need assistance marking your ballot, you may have someone assist you. (Note: You cannot receive assistance from your employer or from your union representative.) If you are unable to enter your voting location due to disability, you may request curbside voting. Contact your municipal clerk for information. Other reasonable accommodation can be requested. Speak to the chief inspector at your polling place or the municipal clerk.
