With the COVID-19 pandemic, many voters are expected to choose to vote absentee to avoid crowded polling places.

To ensure your vote is counted, make sure you and your witness both sign the envelope used to mail in your ballot.

"You don't have to have a reason to vote absentee, we're coming up on the deadline to request an absentee ballot for the August 11th election so anyone who would be interested in doing that should probably should get that done this week,” said Celestine Jeffreys, the Chief of Staff at the Green Bay Mayor's Office. “For the November election, the absentee ballots go out in mid-September so this is a great time to request absentee ballots by mail."

Also, make sure your witness provides their address as well, because if you don't, your vote could be deemed invalid.
