How to Register
Registration is open until 5:00 pm 20 days before an election. You may also register at the polls on Election Day. Wisconsin requires 28 days to establish residency at a new address. Temporary absence does not affect residency. Time spent away from your residence still counts toward the 28-day residency requirement as long as you intend to return. When registering, you must present Proof of Residence, a document showing your current name at your current address. You cannot register to vote at a post office box. View acceptable forms of Proof of Residence.
You may register to vote at My Vote Wisconsin if you have a valid, unexpired Wisconsin driver's license or Wisconsin ID, and your address on file with the DMV matches the address at which you are registering to vote.
