Election Odds & Ends
We have received requests from voters for online registration and online voting. State Election Law does not permit either one at this time. Any change to election law must be made at the state level. Contact your state legislators to register your interest in online election services.
Did you know that the entire state of Oregon votes via absentee ballot? No waiting in line, no costly polling place maintenance, less election training, less duplication of effort and personnel. Registered voters automatically receive ballots and postage-paid return envelopes for all applicable elections. If this sounds interesting to you, let your state legislators know.
You can register to vote by the following methods:
- By mail. Up to 20 days before the election. Registration forms should be mailed to your municipal clerk. You can start your voter registration form online at MyVote Wisconsin. Your form must be printed, signed, and mailed or delivered, to your municipal clerk. You must always provide a Proof of Residence document when registering. If you are registering by mail, you can use any of the forms of Proof of residence except a residential lease.
- Online. Up to 20 days before the election. Voters who have a valid State of Wisconsin Driver License or State of Wisconsin ID card issued by the Wisconsin Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) can register to vote online on the MyVote Wisconsin website. To register online, the voter must enter a name, date of birth, Driver License or ID number and address that matches what is on file with the Wisconsin DMV. If all of the fields match, the voter will be able to register to vote completely online without needing to print, sign or mail the form and without needing to send a proof of residence document. Voters who are not able to match their information with the information in the DMV database will be given the option to register by mail (see instructions above).
