Voter Registration

If you are a first-time Wisconsin voter or if you changed your name or address since you last voted, you will need to register to vote. Also, if you have not voted in over four years, your voter record may be inactive and you may need to re-register to vote. To check your registration status, go to http://myvote.wi.gov and search for your voter record. You can also initiate a voter registration on that website, but note you will still need to print, sign and submit the form with a proof of residence document in-person at Village Hall if it is within 20 days of the election or at the polls on Election Day.  Voter registration may be completed in-person at Village Hall up until Friday, March 29 and at the polling place on Election Day.

Absentee Voting

Electors can submit an absentee ballot before Election Day, either in-person or by mail. In-person absentee voting will be available at Village Hall (925 15th Ave.) during normal business hours (Monday-Friday, 8-4:30) from Monday, March 18 (beginning at 11 a.m.) to Friday, March 29. To request an absentee ballot by mail, please submit an absentee ballot request application and copy of a valid Photo ID to Village Hall. The application can be obtained at http://myvote.wi.gov or by picking one up at the office or we can mail an application to you.
