Wisconsin: Voting at the Polls on Election Day

Poll Hours: 7:00 AM-8:00 PM

    Wisconsin's voter ID law was held unconstitutional on March 12, 2012 by a state judge. If you are registering to vote AND you have a Wisconsin driver license or state ID, you are required to provide the license or ID number on the application form. If the driver license or state ID card has your current address, you may use it to provide proof of residence.

    Anyone wishing to vote in the state of Wisconsin has three options to register:

      By Mail

      • Download the Application for Voter Registration (GAB-131), complete the form and mail it into the municipal clerk's office.The application must be postmarked no later than the 20th day (3rd Wednesday) before the election.
      • PLEASE NOTE: State and federal law now requires that any first-time voter submitting a registration application by mail provide a copy of an acceptable identifying document that provides proof of residence.
      • Please note that first-time voters registering by mail may not use a residential lease as proof of residence. 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 be required to supply it before being issued a ballot at the polling place or before being issued an absentee ballot in the municipal clerk's office.

      IN PERSON

      • Register in the municipal clerk's office up to 5 p.m. or the close of business whichever is later on the Friday before the election. Note: After the BY MAIL deadline, an elector registering in person in the clerk's office is required to present acceptable proof of residence

      AT THE POLLING PLACE ON ELECTION DAY

      • If you wish to register to vote at your polling place, you must bring proof that you reside at your present location. For purposes of voter registration, acceptable forms of proof of residence must include:
      • A current and complete name, including both the given and family name; and
      • A current and complete residential address, including a numbered street address, if any, and the name of a municipality.

      Proof of Residence

        The following constitute acceptable Proof-of-Residence if the document contains your current name and address and is valid on Election Day:

        • A current and valid Wisconsin driver license.
        • A current and valid Wisconsin identification card.
        • Any other official identification card or license issued by a Wisconsin governmental body or unit.
        • Any identification card issued by an employer in the normal course of business and bearing a photo of the card holder, but not including a business card.
        • A real estate tax bill or receipt for the current year or the year preceding the date of the election.
        • A residential lease which is effective for a period that includes election day (NOT for first-time voters registering by mail).
        • A university, college or technical institute identification card (must include photo), ONLY if the bearer provides a fee receipt dated within the last nine months or the institution provides a certified housing list to the municipal clerk.
        • A gas, electric or telephone service statement (utility bill) for the period commencing not earlier than 90 days before election day.
