Proof of Residence for Voter Registration

If you have a Wisconsin driver license or state ID card, you can complete your registration online at https://myvote.wi.gov.  The address that you enter will be checked against the address on file with the DMV.  You can update your address with the DMV online by starting at https://tinyurl.com/DMVchanges.

If you do not have either of the above documents, to register you must use a paper form, and you must show proof of residence (POR).  (My Vote Wisconsin will help you start the registration process.)

Electronic proof of residence is acceptable, on a smart phone, tablet, laptop, etc, per a decision by the Board in August 2012.

All Proof of Residence documents must include the voter’s name and current address.  The following examples of electronic proof are either government documents or utility bills.

*At their June 18, 2015 Board meeting (agenda, pages 117-122), the GAB determined that these types of library system documents are acceptable as proof of residence since they are government documents.  See minutes, page 7.

**From the Madison clerk regarding my.wisc.edu:  “mailing address” and “home address” are listed at the bottom.  It is likely that the “mailing address” will be the Madison address where the student resides for voting purposes.  Students are not required to change their “home address” (frequently their parent’s address) to claim Madison residency.
