Election deadlines to keep in mind
LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – As we count down to November 3rd there are some important deadlines to be aware of.
As of 5 pm Thursday, October 30th, you can no longer request an absentee ballot by mail.
If you did request one on Thursday be aware that it could take up to a week to get to you and a week to send back, which means your vote won’t be counted.
If you’re concerned about this contact your local municipal clerk as soon as possible to find out what other options you have.
Ballots must be delivered or dropped off at your polling place by 8 pm on Election Day.
It is also important to know ballot box pick-up times in your area, some jurisdictions may not even allow voters to use the ballot box on election day.
