With the 2020 partisan primary election in August and the presidential election in November, now would be a good time to check and see if you are registered to vote.

To easily check for your voter registration, you can visit the MyVote Wisconsin website, which offers you the option to check your voter information, locate your polling place, update your name or address, and of course, register to vote.

To check and see if you're registered, click on the register to vote tab, and search by your name and date of birth.

If you're registered, it will show you your status and your current address.

If you aren't registered to vote, it will give you an option to register to vote and list out the steps in which you'll go through for both online registration or by mail.

In order to register to vote online, you'll need to first find out if you're eligible to vote, update your name or address if needed, certify your registration and save the information. You'll also be given an option to have your registration information emailed or mailed to you.

To register online, you'll need to do it over 20 days in advance of the election. If it's less than 20 days, you won't be able to register to vote by mail. Deliver your registration form with proof of residence to your municipal clerk's office by the Friday before the election or you can bring it to your polling place on Election Day.

Once you've completed all of the steps on the page, voila! You're registered.

You can also request an absentee ballotusing the MyVote Wisconsin site.
