Military and Overseas Voter Manual


Military and overseas voters face additional challenges when voting. There are many state and national laws that protect military and overseas individuals’ right to vote. Wisconsin clerks are entrusted with ensuring that everyone has access to cast a ballot and much of the clerk activity surrounding ballot requests, mailing, and receipt/processing is tracked and reported to the federal government so they can be sure that all states are following the federally mandated guidelines.

Military and overseas voting can be complicated, and this guide serves as a resource for clerks, providing clarity around the many deadlines, voting and registration requirements, and other important processes.
