Absentee Ballot Witness Requirements
Wisconsin Election Commission staff has received a number of questions regarding the witness requirements for the absentee ballot return envelope.
1. Is there any exemption to the witness requirement for voters who are quarantined?
No, absentee voters must have someone witness their absentee ballot by signing and providing their address on the certificate envelope (EL-122). The witness signature confirms the voter voted the ballot and placed it in the envelope for return. The witness must also be a U.S. citizen (Note: for military and overseas voters, the witness does not have to be a citizen).
2. What options are there for witnesses for voters who are quarantined and not allowed visitors?
Voters will have to find a way to have their witness provide the required information on the certificate envelope. Where direct interaction is being avoided, we have suggested that a family member, friend or neighbor may watch the vote through a window, the voter may insert the ballot in the envelope and then leave it outside the door for the witness to sign. Other options for witnesses in these situations include, mail delivery persons, grocery or food delivery persons, and medical professionals. As always, spouses or roommates can always witness each other’s ballots. If you have a voter who does not think they can meet this requirement, contact the WEC for assistance with determining alternative qualified options.
Any further election questions can be directed to the Village Clerk @ 414-371-3050 or email@example.com
