Absentee ballot request DAY OF ACTION
Sat January 22
Text bank 10am-12pm
Phone bank 12-3pm
Kick off the election year with important virtual actions! The Madtown Os are hosting a text banking opportunity for volunteers to message their friends, family, coworkers, neighbors, and others so we can encourage them to request their absentee ballots for the year! Training and support will be provided.
Or if you prefer to make calls, there's also a phone banking opportunity. As always, you can make calls from home and make a difference from your couch! Training and support will be provided.
Encouraging voters to request their ballots is an easy ask and incredibly powerful! In 2020, 98% of voters who requested an absentee ballot cast their vote! And we know relational organizing like this among our personal networks can move the needle in an election 1-3%, the point differential in many WI statewide races.
Be sure to remind friends, family, coworkers, neighbors, and others to request their ballots too! It's a way to Get Out The Vote for the Spring Election AND the crucial November Election NOW!
This is another opportunity to text your personal networks. Maybe you can't make the January Day of Action but are ready to take action. Or maybe you have so many friends and family members you need to volunteer twice. Either way, please join the Os for this text bank event where we'll again be getting blue voters ready for all the elections this year by asking them to request their absentee ballots for the whole year.
Absentee ballot request Text Bank
Sat February 12
If you are already registered, this process is simple on myvote.wi.gov. You will need to upload a valid photo ID, but if you already have one on file from a previous request you don't need to upload again. Be sure to click the circle that you are requesting ballots for "All elections for the calendar year ending 12/31/2022." (see picture)
If you need to register, that can also be done at myvote.wi.gov.
Check your poll location on the site too, which is always good to do since many have changed.
How do I request my absentee ballots for the year?
It only takes a couple minutes at myvote.wi.gov!
