Absentee Voting

Absentee Voting By Mail

If you already registered in the Town of Brookfield you may request an absentee ballot online via www.MyVote.wi.gov , by letter, or by filling in the absentee application (PDF). It must list the address at which you legally reside, the address where the absentee ballot should be sent (if different from your legal address), your signature and a copy of your photo ID. 

You should allow enough time for:

  • Your request to reach the town clerk’s office (must be received no later than the 5th day before the Election if requesting it to be mailed.)
  • The ballot to be mailed out to the requested address (usually the same day that the request is received) unless you reside where Special Voting Deputies Visit
  • The completed ballot to be returned to the Town Clerk’s office prior to Election Day or no later than 8PM on Election Day. 
    • If you choose to mail your absentee ballot back to the Clerk’s office, USPS recommends putting it in the mail at least 7 days prior to Election Day (deadline to return).

Mail or Email requests to the Town Clerk’s office at Town Hall:

645 Janacek Rd.
Brookfield, WI 53045.

You can also come to the Town Clerk’s office during normal working hours to complete an absentee ballot request form. The deadline for this is the Friday before Election Day. Please note: Absentee ballots may NOT be hand-carried outside of Town Hall. You may NOT pick up an absentee ballot for anyone else and take it to them.

Permanent Absentee Voting

Permanent absentee voting applies to electors who are indefinitely confined to a home or a care facility, hospitalized, or serving as a sequestered juror. If this applies to you, please contact the Town Clerk’s office at (262) 796-3788 for more information. Please be aware that the Post Office CANNOT forward absentee ballots.
