All voters in Wisconsin must register prior to being able to vote. Currently Wisconsin allows "same-day voter registration", i.e. registering at the polls on election day, however, registering in advance is recommended as you may not be allowed to vote, or may be required to vote a provisional ballot (which requires follow-up information from you prior to being counted) if there are any questions or you are missing any of the information required for your registration.
You may register to vote in person at the City Clerk-Treasurer's office anytime up to the Friday before an election. Please note that no registrations may take place on the Saturday, Sunday or Monday prior to an election.
Please complete and print out a Voter Registration Form. The links below take you to fillable forms. For accuracy in entering your information, we encourage you to type your information into the form before you print it. You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to access these forms.
You may, if you prefer, use the "My Vote Wisconsin" button under the Mail In Registration heading, and then print that form and bring it with you to City Hall.
You may register to vote by mail up to 20 days before an election. Please allow sufficient time for mailing, as the form must reach our office by the 20-day cut-off. After the 20 day cut-off, you must come in to the Clerk-Treasurer's office to register in person.
When registering by mail, we encourage you to use the "My Vote Wisconsin" system. You are able to enter your information directly to the Wisconsin voter registration system. Please note, at this time, you are still required to print off the computer-generated form and mail it to City Hall, however, there is less chance of data-entry error, since we do not have to re-enter the information. Once the Clerk-Treasurer's staff receives your mailed copy, your registration will be active. If you do not mail in the form, your registration will NOT be activated, and you will not appear in the poll book.
**Following your registration, whether in person or by mail, you will receive a postcard from the State indicating your registration has been completed. If you do not receive this postcard, usually in about 2-3 weeks, please contact the Clerk-Treasurer to verify that your registration has been finalized.
To register in person, by mail, or on election day, you will need the following:
Also, voters must reside at their address for at least 28 days prior to Election Day in order to register to vote at that address. Voters who have moved within Wisconsin less than 28 days before an election must vote from their previous address, either by absentee ballot or at the polling place. Voters who have moved to Wisconsin from another state less than 28 days before an election are only eligible to vote in Presidential elections.
The following documents qualify as proof of residence if they meet the criteria listed in #3 above:
Electronic versions of many of the above documents are acceptable as proof of residence.
PLEASE NOTE: Wisconsin law no longer allows a "corraborating witness" to provide proof of residence. You must have one of the above documents.
