National Voter Registration Day is recognized on the fourth Tuesday of every September to bring attention to the importance of registering to vote. This year, National Voter Registration Day will be on Sept. 25.
If you’re not already registered, there are several ways you can register to vote:
Online. Eligible voters in Wisconsin who have a valid Wisconsin drivers license or a Wisconsin DMV-issued ID can now register online at MyVote.WI.gov up to 20 days before the election in which they are planning to vote. For the Nov. 6 election, the last day to register online is Wednesday, Oct. 17.
By Mail. You can start your voter registration form online at MyVote.WI.gov – then print, sign and mail it to your municipal clerk along with a Proof Of Residence (POR) document. Your form and POR must be postmarked no later than 20 days before the election in which you are planning to vote. Again, for the Nov. 6 election, that date is Wednesday, Oct. 17
In your Municipal Clerk’s Office. You can register in-person in your municipal clerk’s office up until the 5 p.m. (or close of business) on the Friday before the election in which you are planning to vote. For the Nov. 6 election, that date is Friday, Nov. 2 at 5 p.m. You’ll need to bring a proof of residence document to complete your registration (this document can be shown electronically).
At the Polls on Election Day. If you’re unable to register by any of the methods above, you can still register at the polls on Election Day. You will need to present a proof of residence document when registering (again, this document can be shown electronically). If your drivers license or state ID card has your current address, that’s all you need.Did you like this story? Subscribe to NNS today.
