Requirements
Wisconsin Eligibility (.pdf, 101K)
U.S. citizens who are at least 18 years old on election day, who are residents for 28 consecutive days or more of the district or ward where an election is being held, and who are not currently serving a sentence (including probation or parole) for a felony conviction are eligible to vote in the state of Wisconsin.
Wisconsin Residency Guidelines (.pdf, 134K)
Students and other transient individuals have unique circumstances that make establishing a residency for 28 days challenging. The Wisconsin Statutes recognize and address these challenges.
     
The G.A.B. has developed the attached document 
to clarify residency issues for students. We encourage you to print this guide and share it with anyone who may find it helpful, including voters, poll workers, and observers. This document could also be helpful during voter registration at the polling place.
 
Students who chose to use their Carroll University ID as a proof of residency document must also provide a university course fee statement  dated within the past nine months.

National Mail in Registration form (.pdf, 483K)

If you are voting for the first time in your state and are registering by mail, Federal law may require you to show proof of identification the first time you vote. This proof of identification includes the following (or if voting by mail, a COPY of the following):

  • A current and valid photo identification; OR

  • A current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck or government document that shows your name and address.

Federal law does not require you to show proof of identification at the polling place or when voting by mail if (1) you provided COPIES of the above with your National Mail Voter Registration Form; (2) your voter registration form has been verified by an election official; or (3) you are entitled by federal law to vote by absentee ballot. Please note that individual states may have additional voter identification requirements.
 
For more information regarding mail in registration, see the Election Assistance Commission website.
