In-person election day. If you did not register before, you can show up and vote with proof of your residence. Find your local polling station here:
You may vote even if:
- Everyone needs to show a photo ID to vote, but you don’t have to use a driver’s license.
- You are an Ex-Felon (as long as you no longer have to report to a probation or parole officer because of a Felony conviction. Your civil rights are automatically restored when you are “Off Paper.” If you’ve only been convicted of a misdemeanor, you CAN vote – even while serving a misdemeanor sentence);
- You don’t speak English (as long as you are a U.S. citizen);
- You are a student living away from your parents (you can choose to vote where you live for school OR where you last resided before attending school. You may not vote twice.)
Register to vote today by clicking the button below:
You May Vote in Wisconsin if:
- You will be at least 18 years old by Election Day;
- You are a U.S. citizen by birth or by naturalization. (If you were born in Puerto Rico, you are automatically a U.S. citizen.)
- You will be a Wisconsin resident for at least 10 days by Election Day;
- You have registered to vote – or you register on Election Day. (If you’ve registered from a different address in the past, you must register again at your new address.)
What do I do if I have to register?
If you have a current, valid, Wisconsin driver’s license, bring it so you can write your license number on the voter registration card. If you don’t have a current, valid, Wisconsin driver’s license, you still CAN register by writing the last 4 digits of your social security number or state ID card on the registration card, or by checking the box that says you don’t have any of these documents.
You prove where you live. If you’re registering on Election Day, if you registered by mail, if you registered less than 20 days before the election, or if you registered in a registration drive, bring a document with your name and current address, like a driver’s license, state ID, recent utility bill, property tax bill, lease, bank statement, or pay check.
