(Juneau) If you requested an absentee ballot by mail, election officials say you should be seeing that ballot in your mailbox. Dodge County Clerk Karen Gibson says municipal clerks sent out all ballots last week from people who have had requests on file. Ballots will continue to be sent out to voters who request them by mail until the Thursday before the election. In person, absentee voting starts on October 20 but Gibson notes that absentee ballots requested by mail can be dropped off at your municipal clerk’s office right now. She also clarifies that requests for ballots require photo identification and placing a ballot in the envelope requires a witness’s address and signature. Once that has been done, anyone can return the ballot provided the ballot is delivered to the appropriate voting jurisdiction.
