Because of the COVID-19, voters in Marathon County are strongly urged to act now to vote absentee for the April 7 Spring Election and Presidential Preference Primary, according to a news release issued Monday.

“Polls will be open in all Marathon County municipalities for those who need them on Election Day, but most voters should vote absentee for this election,” said Marathon County Clerk Kim Trueblood.  “For that to happen, you should request an absentee ballot as soon as possible.”

Acting by Wednesday, March 18, is especially important for anyone who needs to register to vote by mail, Trueblood said. If your name or address has changed since the last election, you need to register with your current information.

You can check your registration status at, click on “My Voter Info.”

If you know you are registered but cannot find yourself on the website, you should contact your municipal clerk or Wisconsin Elections Commission in case of a typo in the spelling of your name or your date of birth.

oters who cannot find themselves on MyVote should call their municipal clerk’s office or call the Wisconsin Elections Commission at 866-VOTE-WIS (866-868-3947) or 608-261-8005.
