WHAT IS A SPECIAL VOTER REGISTRATION DEPUTY?

Under State Statute 6.26, any qualified elector of the State of Wisconsin may apply to the City Clerk to be appointed as a Special Registration Deputy to register voters in the City of Madison.

No individual may serve as a Special Registration Deputy unless he or she has completed at least one approved training program within the last two calendar years (starting January of odd years through December of even years).

 

Upon completion of this training session, submit the Special Registration Deputy Certification Form to:

City Clerk

City-County Building Room 103

210 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.

Madison, WI 53703

Fax: 608-266-4666

E-mail: clerk@cityofmadison.com

No person may compensate a person who obtains voter registration forms from other persons based on a rate that varies relative to the number of registrations obtained. Anyone who violates this provision may be fined up to $1,000 or imprisoned for up to six months, or both.

Special Registration Deputies must print and sign their names on all registration forms. All registration forms accepted by Special Registration Deputies are subject to a postcard audit.

Special Registration Deputies cannot register voters when registration is closed, from the third Wednesday (20 days) before the election, through Election Day. When registration is closed, voters may only register in the City Clerk's Office, at the polls on Election Day, or as a hospitalized elector.
