National Voter Registration Day 2018

Friday, September 21, 2018 - 11:22pm

A Non-Partisan Celebration of Democracy

Madison, WI -- On Tuesday, September 25, the City of Madison will join hundreds of communities nationwide in celebrating National Voter Registration Day.

Voters who have moved and have updated their name and address with the Division of Motor Vehicles have a new, convenient option for celebrating National Voter Registration Day at home: they can completely register online at MyVote.wi.gov.

Proof of Address
Proof of address, either on paper or in an electronic format, is required for all voter registrations that are not completely submitted online (proof of address is verified with the DMV for online submissions). The following types of documents are acceptable as proof of address:

  1. Utility bill that covers a time frame within the past 90 days (water, gas, electric, cable, internet, landline or cellular phone)
  2. Bank or credit union statement
  3. Current and valid Wisconsin driver license or Wisconsin identification card
  4. Paycheck or pay stub
  5. Document issued by a unit of government (this includes a public school, Madison College, or UW-Madison)
  6. Check issued by a unit of government
  7. Affidavit from an agency (public or private) providing homeless services
  8. Edgewood College fee statement, accompanied by an Edgewood College student ID
  9. Intake document from a residential care facility

The types of proof of address most commonly used in the City of Madison are Wisconsin driver license/ID cards, Madison Water Utility bills, Madison Gas & Electric bills, and UW-Madison documents.

The state has eliminated Special Registration Deputies, so the City Clerk’s Office needs a copy of the proof of address document presented at a voter registration drive. If the proof of address is presented on a smart phone or computer, a screen shot of the document can be sent electronically to por@cityofmadison.com.
