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.


You must make a request for an absentee ballot in writing.


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 the 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 or in person.

Subject: Douglas County Wildlife Monitoring – Outreach Opportunity


Hello Douglas County Town Clerks,


I am coordinating a volunteer-based program called Snapshot Wisconsin that the Wisconsin DNR launched recently in Douglas County. Snapshot Wisconsin is a year-round, statewide effort to engage citizens and students in monitoring wildlife populations using trail cameras. Volunteers participating in this project will collect crucial information that will be used to make wildlife management decisions across the state.


Volunteers can participate if they have access to at least 10 acres of contiguous private land, and agree to maintain a trail camera on that land for at least one year. Training and supplies will be provided, and no prior experience with trail cameras is necessary.  The volunteer signup page is here:


I’m looking for the best opportunities to get the word out to potential volunteers, and I’m hoping that each of you would be willing to post a flier (PDF attached) in your Town Office if you have a location to post community interest items.  If you have a Town Facebook page or newsletter (electronic or printed) and would be willing to post information there, feel free to use the sample wording from the attached Word document.


We also have an e-newsletter for those who would like to stay up to date about the project.  Additionally, I have attached a couple of photos from our project for you to view if you are interested. We also have a Pinterest board with more photos for those who are interested.


If you have any questions or comments about the program please feel free to reply to this email or call me at 608-221-6338.
