Absentee Voting through Mail 

The City of Green Bay, along with Governor Evers’ office, strongly urges voters to request an absentee ballot. Voters may request an absentee ballot up to the Thursday before election day, that is, the last day to request an absentee ballot is April 2, 2020.

  • To request an absentee ballot online: https://myvote.wi.gov/en-us/VoteAbsentee 
  • To request an absentee ballot through the Clerk’s Office: 
    • Send a letter, or you may contact the office through email at absenteerequest@greenbaywi.gov. Include your name, address, phone number and signature. You will need to provide photo ID if you are not requesting to be on the indefinitely confined list, are in the military, or are overseas permanently. Send the request to: City Clerk, 100 N Jefferson St. Rm. 106, Green Bay, WI 54301.
      1. If you are indefinitely confined (doesn’t mean confined to your home) because of age, illness, infirmity or disability, you can request to be put on the permanent list and an absentee ballot will be mailed to you until you fail to return a ballot;
      2. If you don’t qualify as indefinitely confined, you can send a request at the beginning of every year and we will send you a ballot for every election that year;
      3. You can request an absentee ballot for one election;
      4. Or, if you are out of town during election time, we can mail an absentee ballot to your destination. Please allow adequate time for mailing to and from, so we receive your ballot by Election Day for your vote to count.
    • The Green Bay City Clerk’s Office will honor all requests to fax or email absentee ballots to Military, Overseas-Permanently, and Overseas-Temporary voters. Other requests to fax or email absentee ballots will be granted only in extraordinary circumstances.
