Judge Provides Preliminary Relief for Absentee Voting

(Green Bay, WI)  Judge William Conley, United States District Court, District of Wisconsin, has given the State of Wisconsin preliminary relief on the request, receipt and processing of absentee ballots.  Three issues of particular concern to Green Bay voters are:  the due date for absentee ballot requests; the deadline for receipt of absentee ballots; and the requirement for a witness signature. 

The due date for absentee ballots requests has been extended to tomorrow, April 3, 2020 at 5 pm.  There are three ways to submit a request before 5 pm tomorrow.  Voters may complete a request at www.myvote.wi.gov. Voters may drop-off a letter to city hall containing your name, address, and the date you’d like the ballot for, along with a copy of your photo identification.  Voters may also send an email to absenteerequest@greenbaywi.gov with your name, address, and the date you’d like the ballot for, along with a copy of your photo identification. 

The deadline for processing absentee ballots has been extended from 8 pm on April 7th to 4 pm on April 13, 2020.  All absentee ballots received by 4 pm on April 13, 2020 will be counted.  The City of Green Bay encourages voters to drop-off their completed ballots to the City Hall drop-box, located on the parking-lot side of the building, 100 N. Jefferson St.

Finally, voters who weren’t able to get a witness can provide a written statement, attesting to their inability to obtain a witness for their absentee ballot.  The voter can provide the written statement along with their ballot.
