For Wisconsin, the last day to register to vote by mail and online is Wednesday, Oct. 14.

Common Council President Cavalier Johnson is urging residents to know all their options and to make a plan for registration and voting.

“We are less than three weeks away from Election Day, and I’m asking all residents to make sure you have a plan to vote, whether that is by mail, in-person early voting, or voting at your polling place on November 3rd,” Alderman Johnson said. “The first step in the process is registering to vote, and the deadline to do so online or by mail is today. While those are great options, should someone miss that deadline other registration options still exist.”

Residents can register to vote online using a valid driver's license or photo ID here.

For mail registration, mail must be postmarked by Oct. 14 and include the voter registration form along with proper proof of residence.

Proof of residence may include: a current and valid Wisconsin Driver License or State ID; any other official identification card or license issued by a Wisconsin governmental body.

A full list of proof of residence can be found here.

After Oct. 14, Wis. residents can register to vote in-person at any early voting site or the clerk's office through 5 p.m. on Oct. 30.

Wisconsin does allow in-person registration on Election Day at the polls.

Registering to vote in-person requires proper proof of residence and for those voting on the same day, a photo ID is required.
