How to Register to Vote

Wisconsin law requires every qualified voter to maintain a current voter registration before voting in an election. Therefore, you must complete a voter registration application if you are a new Wisconsin voter, your name and/or residential address has changed since you last registered to vote, or if you have not voted in the past four (4) years.

If you are uncertain of your voter registration name, address or status, you can go to My Vote Wisconsin and select "Regular Voter" to look up your voter record.
Have you moved out of state?  Need to report a death?  In order to be removed from the voter rolls, please email [email protected] and include your name, registration address, date of birth, and the reason for deactivation.
