In order to vote, you will first need to be registered where you plan on voting. You will need to register if:
- You are a first-time voter
- You have moved to a new address (or even changed apartment numbers)
- You have changed your legal name since the last time you voted
If you are voting at the same address as the last time you voted (including apartment number), you are probably already registered. To check if you are registered, visit: MyVote Wisconsin.
If you have moved or are registering for the first time and the address on your Wisconsin ID or Drivers License is incorrect, first go to the Wisconsin DMV website and update your address. It is free and easy.
Voters must reside at their address for at least 28 days by Election Day in order to register to vote. See Wisconsin Elections Commission for more information.
You may register online if:
- You have a current, valid Wisconsin Driver License or Wisconsin ID Card.
- Your current name and zip code are in the Wisconsin DMV database. You can update your address online in the DMV database.
You may register online in Wisconsin up to 20 days before Election Day.
