    Any qualified elector who is unable or unwilling to appear at the polling place on Election Day may request to vote an absentee ballot.  A qualified elector is any U.S. citizen, who will be 18 years of age or older on Election Day, who has resided in the ward or municipality where he or she wishes to vote for at least 10 consecutive days before the election.  The elector must also be registered in order to receive an absentee ballot.  Proof of identification must be provided before an absentee ballot may be issued.


    Contact your municipal clerk and request that an application for an absentee ballot be sent to you for the primary or election or both.  You may also submit a written request in form of a letter.  Your written request must list your voting address within the municipality where you wish to vote, the address where the absentee ballot should be sent, if different, and your signature.  You may make application for an absentee ballot by mail, email or in person.

    Special absentee voting application provisions apply to electors who are indefinitely confined to home or a care facility, in the military, hospitalized, or serving as a sequestered juror.  If this applies to you, contact the municipal clerk regarding deadlines for requesting and submitting an absentee ballot.

    You may also request and vote an absentee ballot in the clerk’s office or other specified location during the days and hours specified for casting an absentee ballot.

    (WAUKESHA, WI) – The Waukesha County Communications (WCC) Center is working with Public Health officials and the 9-1-1 Medical Director to implement additional screening tools during call-taking procedures to obtain specific information concerning the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. These efforts are in place to mitigate first responder exposure and provide efficient emergency services to Waukesha County residents.

    WCC currently utilizes the International Academy of Emergency Dispatch (IAED) Emergency Medical Dispatch protocol for all medical call-taking. Now, WCC will also implement the Emerging Infectious Disease Surveillance (EIDS) tool on every call for service so call-takers can ask two additional questions to identify potential COVID-19 symptoms, as well as whether the patient has had direct close contact with someone diagnosed, as identified by the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

    Additional measures have been taken in an effort to protect staff, as essential employees, during the COVID-19 outbreak. The WCC is closed to outside visitors until further notice. All group meetings, trainings, visits, tours, and sit-ins have been indefinitely suspended. We will continue to take all necessary precautions to protect our essential communications staff.

    If you have any signs or symptoms of COVID-19 we strongly advise individuals and employees to stay home to limit the spread of the virus.

    • Call 911 for emergencies that pose immediate risks to health, life, property, or environment
    • Visit waukeshacounty.gov/COVID19 for local public health information on COVID-19
    • Call 211 for information for COVID-19 questions about non-serious symptoms
    • Call WCC Non-Emergency at 262-446-5070 with non-emergent requests for Police/Fire

    The Waukesha County Communications center remains responsive to implementing best practice during this pandemic and remains in constant contact with the County Executive’s Office and Department of Public Health as information continues to develop.
