Information regarding Special Voting Deputies

An updated on the November General Election:
On September 1, the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) is mailing out voter informational material that will provide details on applying for an absentee ballot for the upcoming November General Election.

The mailing is designed to explain to voters all three options to vote in the November General Election. Put simply, the main objectives of the mailing are to:

  • Explain how registered voters can cast a ballot for the November General Election
  • Encourage voters to use myvote.wi.gov

Here’s what that means for City of West Bend voters:

  • The mailing includes an application for an absentee ballot. Once completed, the application may be returned by mail or dropped off directly at the City of West Bend Clerk’s Office at 1115 S. Main Street, West Bend. Returning applications directly to the Clerk’s Office will result in faster processing.
  • The mailing is going to voters who are registered to vote in Wisconsin and did not already have a General Election absentee request on file at the end of June. For those who have requested an absentee ballot after June 30, 2020, you may disregard this WEC mailing. To verify your status, visit myvote.wi.gov or call the Clerk’s Office at 262-335-5103.
  • Official absentee ballots will be mailed by the Clerk’s Office beginning on September 17. Absentee ballots can be requested through October 29 at 5 p.m.
  • In-person absentee voting at the City Clerk’s Office will take place on October 20-29 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and October 30, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
