As of January 1, 2006, all municipalities in Wisconsin require voter registration prior to a person being allowed to vote.
The federal "Help American Vote Act of 2002" requires any person registering to vote to supply his or her Wisconsin Department of Transportation issued driver's license number. If the elector has never been issued a Wisconsin driver's license, he/she must provide the last 4 digits of their Social Security Number OR their Wisconsin state ID card number. If the elector does not have a current, valid Wisconsin driver’s license, Wisconsin state ID card, or Social Security Number, the applicant may indicate this by filling in the appropriate circle on the registration form. The registration cannot be processed until the elector provides this information.
Please Note: State and federal law requires that a voter submitting a registration application by mail provide a copy of an acceptable identifying document that provides proof of residence. Acceptable forms of proof of residence are outlined below. The copy of the form of proof of residence must be included when submitting the registration application. If a copy of proof of residence is not included, the elector will not be registered.
Anyone wishing to vote in the state of Wisconsin has three options to register:
1. Mail: Go to My Vote Wisconsin to complete the Voter Registration form and mail it into the City Clerk's office. The application must be postmarked no later than the 20th day (3rd Wednesday) before the election. After this time, all registrations shall be in-person at the Clerk's office. Any registrations received in the mail at this time will be returned.
2. In Person: Register in the City Clerk's office up to 5:00 p.m. or the close of business day, whichever is later, on the Friday before the election. Go to My Vote Wisconsin to create your Voter Registration Form to bring to the Clerk's Office. Remember to bring your proof of residence (see information below).
3. At The Polling Place On Election Day: Registration forms will be available at the polls, or skip in line and bring your completed form with you by going to My Vote Wisconsin and creating your form. If you wish to register to vote at your polling place, you must bring proof that you have lived at your present location for at least 28 days preceding the election. For purposes of voter registration, a list of acceptable forms of proof of residence are below.
