Returning Your Absentee Ballot for the November 3rd General Election

There are three options for returning your absentee ballot.

1.  Using the Postal Service.  After signing and dating your ballot envelope and having your witness sign and putting down their address you can return your ballot in your mailbox.  As we get closer to election day I suggest taking your ballot to the Milton Post Office Desk and hand it to a postal worker.  This will cut the time of return down by several days.

2.  You can return the ballot envelope to my home address.  I have a lock box at the bottom of my driveway that is attached to the fence next to the gate that we enter to go into the basement.  We check this several times a day and the box is under 24 hour surveillance.  My address is 

5818 N Kennedy Road

Milton WI 53563

3. You can return the ballot envelope to my office at the Town Hall.  I am usually in the office from 1pm to 5pm.  The building is open from 7am to 5pm Monday through Friday.  Should I not be in the office when you stop by, you can slide your ballot under my door.  That is where my mail gets delivered.  440 N US Hwy 14, Janesville WI 53546.  The back office.

Again, be sure to sign and date your envelope, have a witness sign and put their address on the envelope.  Using the mail is safe.  In 5 years there have only been a couple of instances where something happened.  You can track your ballot on .  Go to this sight, click on “TRACK MY BALLOT”, Enter your name and birthdate.  Click on ‘SEARCH”.  Click on “VIEW MY REQUEST”  now you can view the date you submitted a request, The date is was approved and the date it was sent.  When you send it back you and then see if the clerk has received your ballot and the date I received it.  After the election (probably a week or better later) you can verify that your ballot was counted.  

Again it is so important that you sign and date your ballot envelope and have a witness sign and put their address on the envelope before mailing.  

Should you have questions please let me know.
