As of January 1, 2006, all municipalities in Wisconsin require voter registration prior to a person being allowed to vote.

#1 IMPORTANT: From the instructions of the GAB-131:

If you have been issued a WI driver license or WI DOT-issued ID that is current and valid, you must provide the number and expiration date. If you are unsure of the number, please call DMV at (608) 266-2353. If you have been issued a WI driver license that is currently revoked, suspended, or expired; or have been issued a WI DOT-issued ID that is expired, please provide the number and the last 4 digits of your Social Security number. If you have not been issued a WI driver license or WI DOT-issued ID, you must provide the last 4 digits of your Social Security number. If you have not been issued a WI driver license, a WI DOT-issued ID, or a Social Security number, indicate that fact by filling in the appropriate circle. If you are registering to vote on Election Day and have been issued a WI driver license or ID, but are unable or unwilling to provide the number, your vote will not be counted unless you provide the number to the election inspectors by 8:00 p.m. on Election Day or to your municipal clerk by 4:00 p.m. the Friday following Election Day.

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

Proof of Residence is now required for all new and updated voter registrations.

:Download from GAB-131, complete the form and mail it into the municipal clerk's office. The application must be postmarked no later then the 20th day (3rd Wednesday) before the election.

: State and federal law now requires that any first-time voter submitting a registration application by mail provides a copy of an acceptable identifying document that provides proof of residence. (A "first-time voter" is an individual who has not voted in an election in Wisconsin.) Acceptable forms of proof of residence are outlined below. 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.

#2 Voter Registration & Absentee Forms:
IN PERSON: Register in the municipal clerk's office up to 5:00 PM or the close of business, whichever is later on the Friday before the election. Note: after the BY MAIL deadline, an elector voting in person in the clerk's office is required to present acceptable proof of residence as outlined below.

AT THE POLLING PLACE ON ELECTION DAY: If you wish to register to vote at your polling place, you must bring proof that you have lived at your present location for al least 28 days preceding the election. For purposes of voter registration, acceptable forms of proof of residence must provided.

*Forms with an expiration date must be valid on Election Day.  

#3 You can also vote absentee at your local municipal clerk's office. In-person absentee voting ( also known as early voting) runs on weekdays 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 check with your municipal clerk for office hours. Early voting is no longer permitted on weekends. 

#4 IMPORTANT: Proof of Residence for Voter Registration:

  4. 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.
