The Town of Montrose is making great headway in the matter of applications for absentee ballots. We now have 771 registered voters, and 196 applications for absentee ballots on file for November. That is 25% of the electorate! Any voter with an absentee request on file before the middle of September should be getting a ballot in the mail by the end of September. It would be wonderful to have 771 applications on file by September 15th.
The easiest way to apply for an absentee ballot is to go to myvote.wi.gov and apply for one. If you have any difficulty uploading an ID, go ahead and complete the application and give the town a call. You can take a picture of the ID and text it to the town phone (608-424-3848), or e-mail it, or photocopy it and mail it, or drop it off if need be. Call the town for help if there is a problem; there are other ways to apply.
All absentee ballots can be returned either by mail or by being dropped off at the town hall, through the office door slot if no one is in. You can check on myvote.wi.gov to make sure that the ballot has been received, and phone the town if you are concerned about that. Almost any procedural problem can be solved – more easily the earlier it is discovered.
We want every person who is eligible to vote to be able to vote. Get in touch if you have any problem at all with any part of the process, and we will be delighted to help out.
