City of Oshkosh Spring Elections - Absentee Voting and Candidate Responses

One of the precautionary measures recommended by health officials to reduce the spread of the novel coronavirus is to avoid large crowds. With the majority of our poll workers being retirees, we can make this a safe, successful election by participating in absentee voting. The process is simple and only requires a few steps. You can participate in absentee voting via online or by mail. 


Online: 


Request an Absentee Ballet online, here. (A digital copy of your identification photo will be required - A quick picture of your drivers licence from your smartphone will work)


By Mail: 


1.) Download the application for the Absentee Ballet, here. You will need to include a copy of your photo identification. The application must be received before 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 2nd. If you don't have access to the internet, you can pick up a application at City Hall.
