FALL WISCONSIN PRIMARY ON AUGUST 11, 2020
The Jewish Federation of Madison is a proud partner in the Wisconsin Interfaith Voter Engagement Campaign. Through our partnership we will be involved with outreach, trainings, and promotion around voter engagement, education, and getting out the vote activities. Below are important election deadlines, information, and volunteer opportunities.
How To Request An Absentee Ballot
Registered voters can request an absentee ballot be sent to them until 5:00 pm on August 6, 2020 by filling out the request form online. You will need to upload a picture of your photo ID if this is your first time requesting an absentee ballot. Due to the high demand for absentee ballots, election officials recommend submitting your request as soon as possible.
Sending Back Your Ballot
Once you receive your ballot, fill it out using the instruction form that comes with the ballot and return it to the Clerk's office by 8:00 pm on Election Day (August 11) or sooner - there are already 330,000 ballots returned so far. Both you and a witness will need to sign the certificate envelope. The witness will also need to write their address. The City of Madison has made this helpful video explaining the absentee voting process.
Dropping Off Your Ballot & Early Voting
Find dropboxes in your area where you can drop off an absentee ballot, and to get information on early voting locations.
Voting In Person
Polling places may have changed, please check before you go.
The ACLU and League of Women Voters have several volunteer opportunities. Please take action where you are able!
The ACLU of Wisconsin's Rights For All Voting Campaign is conducting phone banks from Friday, July 24 until Friday, August 7 to contact voters about their plans to vote safely on or before August 11. Can you commit a minimum of 1 hour between the hours of 10 am and 8 pm on any of those dates to contacting voters? If so, please complete this form and an ACLU organizer will be in contact with you.
