How to register | Voter registration deadline | ID and other requirements | Absentee and early voting
Not sure what you’re registering for? Here’s an explainer on U.S. elections.
In person: you can register at your polling place up to and on Election Day.
By mail or online: Oct. 17, 2018.
You’ll need an ID. Learn what Wisconsin accepts at the polls.
If you don’t have an ID, you’re allowed to go to the polls and request what’s called a “provisional ballot,” which means you promise to show ID at a later date (or else your vote won’t count).
You need to have lived in Wisconsin for 10 days to vote.
Apply for an absentee ballot and send/bring it to your local municipal clerk.
Early voting varies by county. Check with your local municipal clerk to find out when you can vote.
You need to apply for an absentee ballot by the Thursday before the election. Your filled-out ballot needs to be received by your municipal clerk by the end of Election Day.
Military/overseas voters can also get a ballot through the Federal Voting Assistance Program.
