2024 Elections

Voting Hours:

  • Polls are open on Election Day from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
  • In-person absentee voting starts two weeks prior to the election at the Clerk’s Office during normal business hours and ends the Friday before the election at 12:00 p.m.

Voting Requirements:

  1. You must be a U.S. Citizen
  2. You must be 18 years or older on Election Day
  3. You have lived in Springfield for at least 28 days prior to Election Day
  4. You are restricted from voting if you have been convicted of a felony and not restored to civil rights

Voters who have moved within Wisconsin less than 28 days before the election must vote from their previous address either by absentee ballot or at the polling location.  Voters who have moved to Wisconsin from another state less than 28 days before the election are only eligible to vote in Presidential elections. 

Registration is unavailable on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday before an election. 

You may register to vote in person at the town hall. Please make sure to bring acceptable proof-of-residence if your correct address is not listed on your Driver’s License. 

The State of Wisconsin Department of Transportation will issue free state-issued identification cards to any eligible voter that requests the free ID ‘for purposes of voting.’ If you are a regular voter that does not have a valid driver’s license or current state-issued identification, you may want to take the opportunity to receive that free identification card soon to avoid the rush at election time. You cannot have a current driver’s license and receive a free state ID. For more information visit these sites:

Absentee Ballots by Mail

All registered voters may visit MyVote Wisconsin and click “Vote Absentee” to request their absentee ballot. This request must be made no later than 5:00 p.m. on the Thursday before the election in order for an absentee ballot to be sent to you. Please be aware there is no guarantee that a ballot will arrive before Election Day if the absentee ballot request is submitted the week prior to the election.

The absentee ballot must be returned no later than 8:00 p.m. on Election Day. The following are options for returning a ballot:

  • Mail it back in the postage-paid envelope.
  • Drop it off at the clerk’s office at Springfield Town Hall during regular business hours, until 8:00 p.m. on Election Day.

The United States Postal Service recommends mailing your ballot at least one week before Election Day. Returning a ballot from overseas may take longer. Voters can check the status of their ballot by visiting MyVote Wisconsin.

Absentee ballots may not be returned by email or fax.
