WEBSITES TO HELP YOU BECOME AN INFORMED VOTER
MyVote Wisconsin is your one-stop website for everything you need to know about when, where and how to register and vote.
The site provides all Wisconsin residents — registered and non-registered electors — with information regarding the date of their next election, where they vote, what will appear on their ballot, voter registration, absentee voting, the ward and districts in which they live, who holds office in their area, and how to contact their municipal clerk.
Registered electors have access to more detailed information than non-registered electors.
All residents may use the website to create and print a new or updated voter registration application, which they then sign and mail to their municipal clerk or hand deliver and sign in the presence of the municipal clerk or polling place election inspector.
In addition, military voters and permanent overseas voters may use MyVote Wisconsin to request and receive an absentee ballot online.
Vote411.org is your access to the online voters’ guide sponsored by League of Women Voters and populated with information written by candidates who will appear on your ballot in the next election.
Bringit.wi.gov is the official website that tells you what photo ID you need to bring with you to vote on election day. On that site you can find out: (1) Which photo IDs you can use, (2) How to get a free photo ID if you need it, (3) What the exceptions are to the photo ID requirement.
