When is the next election?

If you are at least 18 years old, a U.S. citizen, and have resided at your address for at least 28 days before Election Day, you have the right to vote.
(If you have been convicted of a felony, you may not vote until the sentence, including probation, parole, or extended supervision, has been served. If you have a wager on the results of an election, it is illegal for you to vote. Also, if a judge has declared you unfit to vote, you may not vote.)
Am I registered to vote?
Enter your name and birthdate here to see if you are registered to vote.
If you are not registered or your address has changed,
- you may register online up to 20 days before an election. Staff at the library will help you with this.
- you may register at your municipal clerk's office any weekday during office hours except the Monday before an election.

How do I vote?
You have three options to cast a ballot:
- Vote absentee by mail. Request a ballot by mail, follow the directions carefully, and mail it back quickly. These ballots must be witnessed, and your witness must put their signature and full address on the outside of your ballot. Ballots must be back to your clerk by Election Day. If time is a problem, return the ballot to your clerk's office during weekday hours. Ballots must be mailed or returned by each individual voter, but Federal laws protect the rights of disabled voters to receive assistance in returning their ballot.
- Vote absentee in person during office hours at your clerk's office beginning on the Tuesday two weeks before an election. The last day to vote early in person is the Friday before Election Day.
- Vote at your polling place. Polls are open from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm on Election Day.
- You may register to vote (or re-register due to a new address or new name) at your polling place on Election Day.
- State your name and address to the pollworker, present a photo ID and sign the poll book to begin the voting process.
- You may ask to see a list of registered write-in candidates.
- When you receive a ballot, proceed to a voting booth to mark your ballot.
- It's OK to ask someone to help you read your ballot if you are visually impaired. There may also be a special device available to help you complete your ballot with auditory directions.
- Insert your ballot into the tabulation machine.
- While at your polling place, you may use a cellphone to present proof of address, photo ID, look up candidates while you vote, and take photos -- but it is illegal to photograph other voters or a completed ballot, even your own completed ballot.
Do I need a Voter ID?
Yes. Voters in Wisconsin must present a photo ID whenever they vote in person.
If your driver license or state ID is unexpired, that is all you need. (If you are a registered voter, the address is not required to be correct.)
(You must have a photo ID on file to request a mailed ballot. There is a place to upload a photo of your ID online when you request a mailed ballot here. Once your clerk has that on file, you do not need to upload it again.)
