April 7 Primary - You can Vote At Home!!

You can vote at home, and avoid election day crowds.
Why this is not being promoted during a pandemic is anyone's guess.
Wisconsin voters can easily get more information, find their registration status, voting locations and request an absentee ballot at the official Wisconsin Elections website:
https://myvote.wi.gov/en-us/

I want to promote absentee voting. Voting at Home is smart, safe and a logical choice, not only during a pandemic, but for every election when Tuesdays are normally a busy day for people who may only have a couple of hours to vote.

Please consider making sure you can vote by voting at home.
NOW IS THE TIME TO GET THINGS GOING....

1. every state should have e switched to all mail systems by now

I think it would have prevented a lot of the trouble we are seeing now.

3. Questions regarding the request for an absentee ballot.

How do we provide a photo I.D. with our request for an absentee ballot? I can take a picture of my WI drivers' license and load it onto my C drive, but do they have the capacity for me to attach it somehow when I request the absentee ballot?

Also, would my municipal clerk have the ballots? Seems a lot simpler that way.

Thanks!

4. Copy your Photo ID

What is done at the clerk's office is that they make a color copy of your ID.
If you have a printer with a scanner/copier you can easily do this at home and include that with your application for absentee ballot.

A digital image may not be accepted as they can be manipulated. I would use the simple color copy and print that is pretty common. A Kinko's can make one for pennies, if you have no priniter ( or are out of ink).

You can drop the docs off at the clerk's off or mail it to them, as long a it's post marked before the deadline my mail, in my first post here.

OK?
