INFORMATION ABOUT RETURNING ABSENTEE BALLOTS:

For absentee ballots to be counted, they must be received by 8pm on Election Day, November 3rd.  (Unless a change is made by the Courts) They can be returned by hand by November 2nd to City Hall.  On Election Day November 3rd they must be returned to  Viroqua’s polling place by 8 pm.  If they are returned to City Hall on Election Day we cannot guarantee they will get to the polls to be counted so you need to bring them to the Church of Christ that day because City Hall employees will not be at City Hall that day.
 
Ballots postmarked or hand delivered after November 3rd cannot be counted. (Unless extended by the Court)
 
Viroqua’s polling place is the Church of Christ, 825 Nelson Parkway, Viroqua, WI 54665.

Absentee ballots are complete once the envelope has been signed, addressed and dated by both voter and witness.

For your convenience, City Hall has a drop box to receive absentee ballots. The walk-up drop box is located by City Hall entrance and is attached to the building.  This is the same drop box you would put your utility bill payments in. 

Early absentee voting cannot begin until October 20th at City Hall and will be by appointment only.  It will be October 20-23 and again October 26-30 from 8am-11:15am and 1:00 – 3:00pm.  You can call City Hall at 637-7154 Ext 17 to set up an appointment starting on October 20th.

Absentee ballots are stored at City Hall and not processed until Election Day where they are then opened and entered in the tabulator for counting.  If you want to make sure your ballot was received you can check the myvote.wi.gov website.  We usually receive our mail early in the morning so it is recommended that you mail your ballot early to guarantee it arrives timely.  All ballots have return postage on them.
