The Facts about Military and Overseas Voting in Wisconsin

The State of Wisconsin is nationally-recognized for its long history of ensuring military and overseas voters can participate in Wisconsin general elections. This is in spite of the challenge posed by Wisconsin being one of 10 states with a primary election after Labor Day. Wisconsin’s military voters who are stationed in faraway places around the globe protecting our freedom need enough time to request, receive, vote and return their ballots. This is particularly true for military personnel serving in armed conflict, remote locations, in foxholes on active battlegrounds or on submarines. Overseas citizens living in faraway places also face a similar challenge.
