MADISON, WI – Friday, Apr. 1 is the last day before the Spring Election that voters can register  to vote before Election Day. Voter registration is not available the Saturday, Sunday, or Monday  before an election. Voters are able to register at their polling place on Election Day. 

You can check your voter registration on the MyVote Wisconsin website. If you moved on or  before March 8 – even to a new apartment in the same building – you will need to update your  voter registration. If you moved within 28 days of the election (after March 8), you will not have  been at your new address long enough to establish residency for voting purposes. You will only  be eligible to vote at the polling place for your previous address. 

Proof of residence is needed when registering to vote and it may be electronic. You can use  any of the following documents can be used as proof of residence. The name and address on  the document need to be current, and they need to match the name and address you list on  the voter registration form:
