OnFocus – Most states do not allow voters to make changes to a ballot after it has been submitted, but Wisconsin is one state that does allow voters to change their absentee vote after they have cast a ballot.
In Wisconsin, anyone who voted by absentee ballot can ask for a new one in order to change their vote prior to the election.
The legal deadline for requesting absentee ballots by mail is October 29, so if you want to change your ballot you might need to get your new ballot in person.
In Wisconsin, If you need a new ballot, contact your municipal clerk as soon as possible, election officials say. Learn more HERE.
