RACINE COUNTY — While few county municipalities are requiring masks or offering drive-up voting, all are following social distancing and sanitation precautions for the upcoming Wisconsin partisan primary.
Absentee voting began on Tuesday and will continue through election day on Aug. 11. Due to a recent court decision, absentee voting is permitted up to two weeks before the election, while it previously had started up to a month before the election.
Voters who need or prefer to vote absentee can request their ballots online at or by contacting their city clerk. Absentee ballots can be returned by mail or in person to their designated location.

If it is the first time requesting an anbsentee ballot, a voter must include a copy of their government issued photo ID, whether it is through the myvote website, email or mailing it in with a written absentee ballot request. Ballot requests may be made until Aug. 6 before 5 p.m.
In person voting, whether drive-up or traditional, will be on Tuesday, Aug. 11 from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. Absentee ballots must also have arrived to their designated location before the end of in-person voting hours, or the ballot will not be counted.
