Special Registration Deputies

Special Registration Deputy Training

On May 25, 2011, Governor Walker signed Wisconsin Act 23 into law, also known as the Voter Photo ID Law.  The new law eliminates the Government Accountability Board’s authority to appoint statewide Special Registration Deputies (SRDs).  The law does not affect the authority of municipal clerks in Wisconsin to train and appoint SRDs for their municipality.  If you are interested in participating in the registration process as a municipal Special Registration Deputy, please contact the municipal clerk for that municipality.   

Please note:  This type of Special Registration Deputy is not submitted to the governing body for appointment. 

If you have any questions about Special Registration Deputies, please contact Allison Coakley at (608) 261-2033, or via email at  Thank you.
