Wisconsin Fall 2020 Partisan Primary elections were held August 11, 2020. With 598,459 people voting by absentee ballots, Wisconsin is proving that voting by mail is effective and safe.

It is more important than ever that we socially distance, wear a mask, and stay at home when possible. Mail-in voting is a secure and reliable means for every citizen to participate in their right to vote. With the link below, you can register to vote, update your address, or request an absentee ballot with your name and birth date.

Voting information here.

Sincerely,

 

JON ERPENBACH
State Senator
27th District
