Electronic Proof of Residence
As of April 4, 2014, when you register to vote you must show proof of residence (POR). Electronic proof is acceptable, on a smart phone, tablet, laptop, etc. These examples are either government documents or utility bills:
*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.

You can register at your clerk's office, or through a Special Registration Deputy (SRD) until 20 days before the election, or on Election Day at your polling place.
