Voter Registration

You must be a resident of the town for at least 10 days prior to the election date.  If you have moved to town, you will need to provide evidence of your move-in date (a copy of a lease, electric bill, mail to that address, etc.)  You can still register to vote the day of the election, but it is highly recommended you register early. Check to see if you are registered to vote by visiting http://vpa.wi.gov.  Check out the eligible documents you can use for Proof of Residency

 

You must include a copy of your driver's license when registering by mail and proof of residency if your license does not have your current address, but you do have to provide Proof of Residency.  There is a "blackout period" of 20 days prior to each election where you are required to register in person and mailed in applications cannot be accepted.
