Voter Registration

The Statewide Voter Registration System
As of January 1, 2006, state law requires all voters to be registered. Federal law requires all registered voter information be stored in a centralized, state system. To meet these requirements, the State of Wisconsin has developed the Statewide Voter Registration System (SVRS). Once registered in the system, a voter’s registration and voter history will follow that voter wherever the voter resides within the state. Registering ahead is the best way to avoid delays on Election Day, but electors may still register at the polls on Election Day with proof of residency.
Voting Requirements
To be eligible to vote in the state of Wisconsin, a person must
  1. Be a citizen of the United States of America.
  2. Be 18 years of age on or before election day.
  3. Have been a resident of the municipality where he/she intends to vote for a minimum of 28 days prior to election day.
  4. Have a photo ID.
How to Register
Persons wishing to register must
  1. Complete the voter registration form.
  2. Supply their Wisconsin Department of Transportation – issued driver’s license or identification card number. If the applicant has not been issued a Wisconsin driver’s license or I.D., they must provide the last 4 digits of their Social Security Number.
  3. Supply proof of residence in the local unit.
