For a more comprehensive Wisconsin Elections page you may want to include the MyVote website.

MyVote website address: https://MyVote.WI.gov.

This website is designed for Wisconsin voters, both registered and non-registered.  MyVote provides Wisconsin voters with registration, sample ballot, municipal clerk and polling place information. In addition, there is a section for military and permanent overseas voters to request an absentee ballot and access their absentee ballot online. The new online absentee ballot request and online absentee ballot access features work with the Statewide Voter Registration System (SVRS) and notify clerks when voters register or request an absentee ballot.
