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, or call the Village Office at 639-3524 and we can look it up for you. 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 the Village Office if it is within 20 days of the election or at the polls on Election Day.  Voter registration may also be completed at the Village Office up until Friday, November 2 and at the polling place on Election Day.

Absentee Voting

Electors can submit a ballot before Election Day, either in-person or by mail. In-person absentee voting will be available at the Village Office (215 E. Four Mile Rd.) during normal business hours (Monday-Friday, 8:30-5) from Monday, October 22 to Friday, November 2. To request an absentee ballot by mail, please submit an absentee ballot request application and copy of a valid Photo ID to the Village Office. 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.
