MADISON (AP) - Wisconsin election officials have activated a new website that provides absentee ballots for overseas and military voters.
Military and permanent overseas voters can now request and receive absentee ballots through the state Government Accountability Board's new My Vote WI website.
They'll be able to print the documents, mark them and mail them back to local clerks in Wisconsin. They won't be able to return them electronically.
The board received a $1.9 million federal grant to build the site.
GAB officials say 40 ballots had been delivered as of Wednesday. Nearly 6,500 military and overseas voters returned absentee ballots to Wisconsin in the 2008 presidential election.
