Do you need to register?
If you are voting at the same address as the last time you voted (including apartment number), you should already be registered. You can check if you are registered at My Vote Wisconsin.
You will need to register or re-register if:
- You are a first-time voter
- You have moved to a new address (or even changed apartment numbers)
- You have changed your legal name since the last time you voted
Prepare to register
If you have been issued a Wisconsin driver license or DOT ID card, you will need that number.
If you do not have the above, you will need the last four digits of your Social Security number. More information is below
How to register
Options for registering include online registration (for those eligible); by mail; in person; or at your polling place on Election Day.
Register online: You can complete your voter registration online at myvote.wi.gov if:
· You have a current valid Wisconsin driver license or Wisconsin ID card.
· Your current name and zip code are in the DMV database.
You can update your address in the DMV database at wisconsindot.gov/Pages/online-srvcs/change-addy/default.aspx. No further proof of residence is needed. The address on your ID does not matter.
Register by mail (in Wisconsin) (more than 20 days prior to the election): Follow the instructions on this website.
Register in person (in Madison):
You can register at the City Clerk’s Office until the close of business on the Friday before an election. Everyone needs to provide acceptable proof of current residence to register this close to the election. (See acceptable forms of proof listed below.) Documents used as proof of address may be presented in paper or electronic format.
