Through the Wisconsin Elections Commission website Badger Voters, any political party or individual can pay for and access data about the status of absentee ballots, including whether a ballot was counted or disqualified. This information can be used to send out texts or calls to voters about the status of their ballot, according to a statement from the WEC sent to Wisconsin Watch.
In the case that an absentee ballot is marked as “returned to be rejected,” the clerk can take two courses of action: return the ballot to the voter if there is enough time for an issue to be corrected, or have voter and witness come into the clerk’s office to correct the issue, according to the WEC.
Voters can check the status of their own absentee ballots for free at the state’s website, myvote.wi.gov.
