Voter Registration FAQs

How do I register to vote?

There are three ways: mail, in-person and at the polling place on Election Day.

For may register by mail up to 20 days before the election. Registration (GAB-131) forms should be mailed to your municipal clerk. You can start your registration online at http://myvote.wi.gov. Your form must be printed, signed, and mailed or delivered to your municipal clerk. You must always provide a Proof of Residence document when registering. If you are registering by mail, you can use any of the forms of Proof of Residence listed except a residential lease.

You may register in-person in your municipal clerk’s office up until the Friday before the election no later than 5 p.m. or close of business, whichever is later. You must always provide a Proof of Residence document when registering.

Finally, you can register at your designated polling place on Election Day.

What do I need to bring to register to vote?

If you have been issued a Wisconsin driver license or WI DOT-issued ID that is current and valid, you must provide the number and the expiration date. If your WI driver license is revoked, suspended or expired; or your WI DOT-issued ID is expired, provide the number and the last 4 digits of your Social Security number. If you have none of these documents, you will be able to indicate that fact.

You must provide a Proof of Residence document when registering to vote in Wisconsin. A Proof of Residence document is a document that proves where you live in Wisconsin. Please see Proof of Residence handout for a list of acceptable documents.

What else should I know about registration?

Photo ID is never required when registering to vote. However, a Proof of Residence document is always needed when registering to vote in Wisconsin.

Voters must reside at their address for at least 28 days prior to Election Day in order to register to vote. Voters who have moved within Wisconsin less than 28 days before the election must vote from their previous address, either by absentee ballot or at the polling place. Voters who have moved from another state less than 28 days before an election are only eligible to vote in Presidential elections.

Wisconsin law no longer allows a “corroborating witness” to provide Proof of Residence.

You cannot register the Saturday, Sunday or Monday before an election. You can register at the polling place on Election Day.

Absentee Voting FAQs

Photo ID is in effect and a copy of your Photo ID must accompany your Absentee Ballot Application.

How do I request to vote absentee?

To request an absentee ballot, you need to submit a written application (GAB-121). Please complete this form, print it and submit it to your municipal clerk. You can submit your request via fax, email or U.S. Postal Service.

Registered voters may also request an absentee ballot by sending an e-mail to their clerk in which they state their name, voting address, the address they want the absentee ballot mailed to and the election for which they are voting absentee.

Please note that the clerk must receive your application no later than 5 p.m. on the Thursday before the election for an absentee ballot to be sent to you.

How do I return my absentee ballot?

You are encouraged to return your absentee ballot using the postage-paid envelope you were provided with your ballot. Your completed absentee ballot must be postmarked no later than Election Day and received by the municipal clerk no later than 4 p.m. on the Friday after the election.

You may also return your ballot via a private mail delivery service, such as FedEx, or you may hand-deliver your ballot. If you choose to return your absentee ballot using one of these methods, your completed absentee ballot must be delivered to the municipal clerk’s office no later than 8 p.m. on Election Day.

May I do an in-person absentee vote?

You may also vote absentee at your local municipal clerk’s office. In-person absentee voting (also known as early voting) runs for two weeks before an election, ending at 5 p.m. or the close of business (whichever is later) on the Friday before the election. Please contact your municipal clerk for information about the location and hours for in-person absentee voting.

If you apply for an absentee ballot in your municipal clerk’s office, you must vote your ballot in the clerk’s office, seal your ballot in the proper envelope and return it to a member of the clerk’s staff. No ballots may be taken from the clerk’s office.
