The deadline for Wisconsin residents to register to vote online or by mail is TODAY – Wednesday, October 14th. Common Council President Cavalier Johnson is urging residents still needing to register to know all their options and to make a plan for registration and voting.

Those wanting to register to vote online can do so by visiting www.MyVote.WI.Gov. Registering online will require a valid diver license or state ID. Voter registration by mail must be postmarked by October 14th and include a voter registration form along with proper proof of residence. Proof of residence may include: a current and valid Wisconsin Driver License or state ID; any other official identification card or license issued by a Wisconsin governmental body or unit; a utility bill for the period commencing no earlier than 90 days before Election Day; bank or credit card statements; and a paycheck or paystub. For a full list of acceptable proof of residence documents please click here.

“We are less than three weeks away from Election Day, and I’m asking all residents to make sure you have a plan to vote, whether that is by mail, in-person early voting, or voting at your polling place on November 3rd,” Alderman Johnson said. “The first step in the process is registering to vote, and the deadline to do so online or by mail is today. While those are great options, should someone miss that deadline other registration options still exist.”

After October 14th, residents can still register to vote in-person at any early voting site, their local clerk’s office through 5 p.m. on October 30th, or at their polling site on Election Day. Registering to vote in-person requires a proper proof of residence and for those voting on the same day, a photo ID is required.
