  • Can I register the same day I want to vote?

    Yes, you can register during part of early voting and on Election Day, but you may not register on the Saturday, Sunday, or Monday preceding the election. (So why wait? Do it now!)

  • Can I vote by mail?

    Yes. Any qualified elector who registers to vote in Wisconsin is eligible to request an absentee ballot. Under Wisconsin law, voters do not need a reason or excuse to vote absentee. Even better news? You can request to get your ballots by mail for the whole year. Request your absentee ballot here.

  • Do I need an ID?

    Yes, yes you do, if you're voting in person or voting absentee for the first time. A state driver's license, state ID card, military ID card, US passport, tribal ID, certificate of naturalization, state accredited college ID with signature, or a receipt from the DMV saying your petition for an ID is in process — all of those would work. Get all the details below from VoteRiders.

SINCE YOU LAST VOTED…

Since 2020, it’s become harder to cast your ballot in Wisconsin. Here are the changes you need to pay attention to:

When casting your vote…

  • The Wisconsin Supreme Court has recently banned drop boxes, so you’ll need to find another way of handing in your absentee ballot.
  • Additionally, no one can deliver a ballot on behalf of another person anymore (even the elderly and disabled will need to place their own absentee ballots in the mail).
