Am I eligible to register to vote?

You are eligible to vote in Wisconsin if you:
  • Are a U.S citizen
  • Are a resident of Wisconsin
  • Are at least 18 years old by Election Day
  • Live in the precinct where you vote for at least 28 days prior to the election
You are NOT eligible to vote in Wisconsin if:
  • You are in prison or detention or jail or penal institution
  • You are on parole for a felony conviction or convicted of a felony
  • You are otherwise disqualified from voting
  • You are currently serving a sentence including incarceration, parole, probation, or extended supervision for a felony conviction
Service members and their dependents may register and request a ballot using the federal voter registration/ballot request form ("FPCA"). You will have the following identification options when completing the form:
  • U.S. State or Territory or District Issued ID
  • Option to Indicate that you do not have the Requested ID
  • Last 4 Digits of your Social Security Number
U.S. citizens living abroad have the right to vote as absentee voters, provided they are eligible to vote in their state. If you are living outside of the U.S. permanently, indefinitely, or temporarily, your voting rights stay with you, even if you never voted when you lived in the U.S. To vote from overseas:
  • Complete and send an overseas voter registration/ballot request form to your election office in the U.S. This is one specific form that will register you as an overseas voter and request your absentee ballot – simultaneously.

Can I vote if I have a record?

Please use our eligibility tool to find out if you can vote.

Individuals convicted of a felony are ineligible to vote while incarcerated, on parole, or on probation. Voting rights are automatically restored upon completion of all supervised release. Ex-offenders should re-register to vote.

I am a college student. Where do I register to vote?

Students who lived in Wisconsin before moving elsewhere to attend school, and who wish to establish or keep their Wisconsin voting residency (i.e., at their parents’ Wisconsin address), should have no problem doing so unless they have already registered to vote in another state. Wisconsin law clearly gives students the right to register and vote where they attend school. Generally, your residence is where you currently live—your place of fixed habitation—“without any present intention to move.” Elections officials are not allowed to consider student status when determining your eligibility to vote.
