2020 Fall Election Dates and Early Voting Windows

Voters depend upon libraries as a trusted source for impartial information about candidates, election dates and voter registration! See below for a list of upcoming 2020 elections and windows of opportunity for “early voting.”

Technically, Wisconsin doesn’t have early voting, only in person absentee or mail absentee ballot. Municipal clerks may post hours to accommodate early in-person absentee voting at the town hall or another location or make individual appointments with voters.

A list of municipal clerks, organized by county, is linked here. Registered voters can also find themselves in the system and search for municipal clerks using Unregistered citizens can use the “address search” feature, enter a street address and find their clerk for that municipality. The “What’s on My Ballot?” address search will become active 47 days before an election with federal contests and 21 days before state and local contests. More detailed information on all elections may be found at the Wisconsin Elections Commission elections page.

August 11 – Partisan Primary (races where there is more than one candidate for any party) for Congressional Representatives, State Senators from even numbered districts, and all 99 State Assembly Representatives, all county district attorneys and other partisan county officials where applicable. Early voting window is July 28 – August 7.

November 3 – General and Presidential Election for the offices listed under August 11 primary. Early voting window is October 20 – October 30.
