Absentee Voting

Any qualified elector who is unable to appear at the polling place on election day may request to vote an absentee ballot. 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 of the municipality where he or she wishes to vote for at least 28 consecutive days before the election. The elector must also be registered to receive an absentee ballot. Voters (some exceptions apply) requesting an absentee ballot by mail must provide a copy of their proof of identification along with the absentee ballot request. Voters voting absentee ballots in the Clerk's office need to provide proof of identification before receiving a ballot. Click here for more information.

Election Inspector Interest

  • Be a qualified elector in Lafayette County (i.e., an adult U.S. citizen who has resided in Lafayette County for 28 consecutive days and is not otherwise disqualified from voting).
  • Be able to fluently speak, read, and write the English language.
  • Have strong clerical, problem-solving, and communication skills.
  • Possess good handwriting, vision, hearing, attention to detail, and the ability to follow directions.

Election Inspectors help ensure an open, accurate, and fair election. Some of the duties include issuing ballots, registering voters, monitoring the voting equipment, and completing required paperwork — training provided by the City Clerk and the Wisconsin Elections Commission.
