Continuing Wisconsin's Tradition of Clean and Open Government
The next regularly-scheduled statewide election in Wisconsin is the Spring 2015 Election, which will be held Tuesday, April 7, 2015.
At myvote.wi.gov you can register to vote, check your voter registration status, find your polling place, see what's on your ballot, request an absentee ballot (military and permenant overseas voters only), and check provisional ballot status.
Voters currently do not need to show a photo ID to receive a ballot. The U.S. Supreme Court has blocked implementation of the voter photo ID provisions of 2011 Wisconsin Act 23.
The Wisconsin Division of Motor Vehicles has a new policy to help people get a free state ID card.
Answers to questions about how to register, where to vote, when to vote absentee, and much more.
