MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - State officials are setting up a Web site where military troops and other Wisconsin voters who are overseas can get absentee ballots for November.
Right now, those voters must contact their local government clerks to have ballots sent to them. But the state Government Accountability Board is working a single Web site to speed up the process, and make it easier.
Board spokesman Reid Magney tells Wisconsin Public Radio that the new site will let overseas voters put in their information – and they can print their local absentee ballots which they can fill out mail back to their clerks.
The U.S. Defense Department has provided a $1.9 million federal grant for the project. The new Web site is expected to be online by mid-September.
