On September 1, 2020, the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) is sending an informational mailing to approximately 2.6 million Wisconsin voters.
Put simply, the main objectives of the mailing are to:
• Explain how registered voters can cast a ballot for the November General Election
• 2. Encourage voters to use Myvote.wi.gov
• 3. Encourage voters who choose to request absentee ballots to act early and return the ballot promptly.
What is in the mailing? In total, voters will receive three pieces:
• Voter information mailer
• Absentee Application designed specifically for this mailer
• A pre-addressed, business reply return envelope to the WEC (no postage required by voter).
While the mailing encourages voters to use Myvote.wi.gov, a paper absentee application is included so that individuals without internet access have an option to easily request a ballot. Who is receiving the mailing? Not all voters will receive the mailing. The mailing is only going to voters who are registered to vote in Wisconsin, not in Active Mover’s status, and did not already have a General Election absentee request on file at the end of June.
