Elections & Voting

Absentee Ballots for the August 9, 2022 Spring Partisan Primary have been sent.

  • Track your ballot through MyVote
  • Make sure your certificate envelope has your signature, your witness' signature, and your witness' address
  • Return your ballot in one of the following ways:
    • Mail it back. The United States Postal Service recommends mailing your completed ballot at least one week before Election Day
    • Drop your own ballot off in person with City Staff at City Hall (Monday through Friday 8:30 am to 5 pm)
    • Bring your own ballot to the polling place on Election Day (City Hall Council Chambers 7 am to 8 pm)

Due to the July 8, 2022 Wisconsin Supreme Court Decision, the only exceptions for a spouse or agent to return an absentee ballot on a voter's behalf are for Hospitalized Voters or Sequestered Jurors. 

The use of drop boxes for absentee ballots has been deemed illegal, and is prohibited. Any absentee ballots found in City Hall drop boxes WILL NOT BE COUNTED.

Ballots must be received by 8 pm on Election Day in order to be counted. We strongly encourage all absentee voters to make a plan to return their ballots in a timely manner to avoid any possible issues.

If the City of Lake Geneva receives further information or guidance regarding this issue, we will update accordingly. 

Note: The use of drop boxes for absentee ballots is not permitted for this election.
