Absentee Ballots & Voting
Absentee Ballots are available for individuals who will not be able to attend their regular polling location during an election. It is important to know that absentee voters must also be registered voters (see registration information on this page). The first step to obtaining an absentee ballot is request an Absentee Ballot by going to the MyVote Wisconsin Website or to complete an Application for Absentee Ballot (PDF) and return it to the Clerk's Office via email or by bringing it to Village Hall.
Absentee ballots, which are available approximately three weeks prior to the election, are either mailed to the voter or completed in person at Village Hall. Questions regarding absentee ballots should be directed to the Village Clerk's office at 414-371-3050.
The Village Manager's Office staff welcome the opportunity to perform community relations activities. For example, Brown Deer School District 2nd grade classes visit the Village Hall and participate in a mock Village Board meeting, tour the Village Hall, and visit the Police Department. This event is coordinated by the Village Manager's Office. If you would like assistance or involvement from the Village on a Community Relations activity, please contact the Village Manager's Office at 414-371-3050.
Meeting Agenda (Setting)
The Village Manager is responsible for setting the meeting agendas for the Village Board, and is responsible for reviewing and approving the agendas for all other boards, committees and commissions. If you have any item or matter that you would like the Village Board to consider, you may submit it to the Village Manager's Office. In some cases, the Village Manager or other Village Staff may be able to answer and/or address your questions.
In other cases, the matters may be presented at one of the Village committees or commissions, or directly to the Village Board. Directing communications to the various governing bodies is the responsibility of the Village Manager.
New residents, residents recently turning 18, or residents who have not registered to vote are encouraged to register to vote online at the My Vote Wisconsin Website or at the Village Hall in advance of an election. While you may also register on election dates at the polling places, it is recommended that you register in advance to avoid congestion at the polls.
Examples of Proof of Residency can be found on the Wisconsin Election Commission Website.
