Note: Military electors who are on active duty away from their primary residence (active-away) are subject to special procedures, including later absentee ballot request deadlines and voted ballot receipt deadlines.
Note: If an individual is temporarily overseas on election day, that individual may register and vote like any other elector and is not considered an overseas elector.
In either case, the ballot is mailed, faxed, or emailed per the voter’s request. If the voter does not specify the means of transmission, the clerk may send the ballot via whatever means are practical to expedite receipt of the ballot by the voter.
Local election officials are encouraged to make use of the Federal Voting Assistance Program’s Electronic Transmission Service (ETS) for overseas faxes to reduce costs. ETS will also forward emails to military and overseas citizens. Please view the ETS manual for details.
If the request is by fax or email, an original absentee application bearing the voter’s signature must be received by local election officials no later than the deadline to receive the ballot from the elector. The original absentee application is typically included in the carrier envelope containing the voted ballot, which is placed inside its own security envelope.
Military or overseas voters who do not receive their ballots in time may use the Federal Absentee Write-in Ballot, which is available online and at U.S. embassies. Please consult the directory of U.S. Embassies websites for embassy locations and information.
If you missed your Initial Court Appearance, you were mailed a default letter with a future court date to appear for a Good Cause Hearing, you need to appear at that date to ask for an extension.

You will need to pay your forfeiture in full and the court clerk will lift the 1-year driver's license suspension. This will take 24-48 hours once payment is received for the Department of Motor Vehicles to lift the suspension off your record. At that time you can go and reinstate your driver's license with the Department of Motor Vehicles. Please note this must be done and there are fees for this as well. Your driver's license will not be valid with the Department of Motor Vehicles until you reinstate with them.

There are organizations such as charitable, non-profit organizations that may be exempt from having to obtain a permit. As a general rule, if you are being asked to make a charitable contribution ask for some proof of credentials, literature and the organizations mission etc. You should consider making your contribution by mailing a check to the organization’s main office. Persistent and aggressive attempts to solicit cash donations should be viewed with reasonable skepticism. In any case if you have questions or concerns regarding people going door to door, please contact the Waunakee Police Department.

WFD staff responds from home, work or from out-and-about. We all carry special emergency pagers which are a direct line of communication with Dane County Public Safety - 911 Dispatch. When you call 911 for an emergency, we are often paged before you are off the phone with the operator. We are fortunate that many of our staff live very close to the fire station and are able to respond to the station within 1-2 minutes. This allows WFD to have a fire truck out the door, on the way, within 4 minutes. To put that in perspective, City of Madison Fire Department, who is paid full-time and does staff 24-7, typically takes 2 minutes to respond out the door.
