The April 7 Spring Election and Presidential Preference Primary is occurring as scheduled.

The WEC strongly recommends that anyone planning to vote should request to have an absentee ballot mailed to them as soon as possible.

  • You must be registered to vote to request an absentee ballot. 
  • The deadline to register by mail to vote has passed.
  • The deadline to register online to vote has been extended by federal court order until March 30. 
  • Voters who need to register may also do so in person at their municipal clerk’s office until the Friday before the election and on Election Day at the polling place.
  • Voters should request an absentee ballot as soon as possible for April 7. The deadline is April 2, but do not wait!
  • Request your absentee ballot online at https://myvote.wi.gov

If you have not requested an absentee ballot by mail, please do so today. Preventing an increase in contacts right now will make a difference! In Wisconsin, request your absentee ballot by visiting: myvote.wi.gov

It’s simple and easy and will allow you to vote in the comfort of your own home. Use myvote.wi.gov or contact your municipal clerk’s office directly.
Also, think about those people in your lives who may not be as comfortable with technology and offer to help them request their ballots through MyVote Wisconsin.


Now that you all have your absentee ballots (if you haven’t requested one yet please do so), be sure your ballot can be properly counted. With your ballot, you received a return envelope that has a certification that looks something like this photo. It is vital that you properly complete this! You do, however, need to have a witness, who is an adult U.S. citizen. Your relationship to the witness does not matter: spouses can witness for each other, parents for children, children for parents, etc. As long as the person is an adult U.S. citizen, they can be your witness.
Important Steps:
Sign and date the Certification of Voter section in the presence of your witness
Have your witness sign the Certification of Witness section
Have your witness provide his/her complete address, including city, state, and zip
Mail your ballot with enough time for it to arrive on or before Election Day
It’s that easy and as long as you complete these steps, your ballot will be able to be counted!

Voter Registration Drives – Beware!

Voter registration drives will increase in 2020.  These organizations are not affiliated with the Village of West Milwaukee 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 don’t know and trust.   The safest means to register to vote includes the following: 

  1. Online at MyVote Wisconsin:  https://myvote.wi.gov/en-us/
  2. By mail (complete the voter registration form): https://elections.wi.gov/forms/el-131-fillable
    1. Mail with Proof of Residency to:  Village Clerk, 4755 West Beloit Road, West Milwaukee, WI 53214
  3. In-person at your Municipal Clerk’s Office
  4. In-person at your assigned polling location on Election Day 7am-8pm

Note:  All options require acceptable proof of residency.  

For additional information on acceptable Proof of Residency: https://elections.wi.gov/sites/elections.wi.gov/files/2019-01/27-28%20Proof%20of%20Residence%202019.pdf
