How do I Register to Vote?
If you are not registered, avoid waiting in line by registering at the Town Hall Monday through Friday, 8:00 am – 4:30 pm. State Statute requires you to provide the appropriate proof of residency when registering to vote. For more information about acceptable proof of residence go to https://elections.wi.gov/publications/voter-guides/proof-of-residence.
The deadline to register in-person prior to the Spring Election is Friday, March 31st at 5PM. You may register in the town clerk’s office during normal business hours up until the Friday before any election.
To register after the deadline, you must register at your polling location on Election Day.
You can get the Voter Registration Application (EL-131) here. This form is specifically designed to facilitate data entry into the state voter registration system, which is mandated by the Help America Vote Act. You are also required to provide your Wisconsin driver’s license number or Wisconsin State ID (except on election day, when provisional balloting is allowed for persons who are unable to provide their driver’s license number at that time).
