Hours and Locations for In-Person Absentee Voting in Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE – Mayor Tom Barrett announced the hours of operation for in-person absentee voting (IPAV) throughout the City of Milwaukee.
There are 725 hours of IPAV available in the City, including extended weekend and evening hours, that begins six weeks before the presidential election in November. That represents a 600% increase in hours from previous election years.

Along with offering early voting at the Frank P. Zeidler Municipal Building
(830 N. Market Street, for voters’ already registered and 841 N. Broadway, for voters needing to register or update registration), two additional locations have been added on the north and south sides of Milwaukee. Both the Midtown Center (N. 56th St. and Capitol Drive) and Forest Home Library (1432 W. Forest Home Avenue) will serve as IPAV locations from Monday, October 10, to Saturday, November 5. The hours of operation are below.

“What we have seen in the last few years are efforts around the nation to make it more difficult for individuals to vote,” Mayor Barrett said. “I believe that a democracy works best when more individuals get involved by voting, and that is exactly why we are taking this unprecedented step to have this massive expansion of early voting opportunities. Please make sure you get out and exercise your constitutional right to vote.”

By the third week of early voting, there will be as many as 60 election workers between the three sites. By week six, that number will jump to 120. Bilingual election workers will be available at Forest Home Library.

An additional investment by the City of Milwaukee of $242,000 will be used to fund the operating costs and staffing requirements at all three sites.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit recently upheld U.S. District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin James Peterson’s ruling to lift previous restrictions to IPAV. These restrictions included limitations to the number of days and hours that municipalities could make IPAV available to their residents.
