Voting

Be prepared! Are you registered to vote? Here's what you need to know:

  1. NO, I AM NOT YET REGISTERED TO VOTE.

    Let’s get you registered!

    • Complete your voter registration by using madisoncollege.turbovote.org. You can register to vote online or by mail until 20 days before an election. After that date, you must register to vote in person at your municipal clerk’s office or other designated registration site up until the Friday before the election. You can also register to vote at your polling place on election day.
    • To register online, you must enter a name, date of birth, Wisconsin Driver's License, or ID number, and an address that matches what is on file with the Wisconsin DMV. If all of the fields match, you will be able to register to vote completely online without needing to print, sign, or mail the form and without needing to send a proof of residence document. Voters who are not able to match their information with the information in the DMV database will be given the option to register by mail. You can update your address with the DMV online and then update your address on your voter registration online.
      • If you are unable to register online and need to register by mail, print and mail your registration form to your municipal clerk. You can get assistance with form printing, postage, and mailing from madisoncollege.turbovote.org.  
  2. I'M NOT SURE IF I AM REGISTERED TO VOTE.

    Let’s find out!

    See if you are registered to vote by visiting madisoncollege.turbovote.org and clicking on “Get Started.”

    The Madison College TurboVote site will walk you through the online process of checking your voter registration status and helping you to get registered if you aren’t. If you are registered, you can use TurboVote to request an absentee ballot or find your polling place.

     

  3. YES, I AM REGISTERED TO VOTE.

    Fantastic!

    Verify where you are registered to vote in the municipality where you live and check your polling place location or request an absentee ballot using madisoncollege.turbovote.org.

    If you plan to vote in person, remember to bring a photo ID with you to the polls.

  4. REQUEST AN ABSENTEE BALLOT

    When you receive your ballot, fill it out and mail it back as soon as possible. The U.S. Postal Service recommends mailing it at least one week in advance of Election Day.
