Registering to Vote

Legal Requirements

All municipalities in Wisconsin require voter registration prior to a person being allowed to vote.  In Wisconsin, there are four convenient ways to register. It takes 28 days to establish residency at a new address. Time spent away from your residence counts toward residency as long as you intend to return. When you register, you must prove your current name at your current address. You cannot register to vote at a post office box.


Visit MyVote to register to vote online. You must have a valid, unexpired Wisconsin driver license or Wisconsin ID to use this option.
