Celebrate National Voter Education Week
Monday, October 5, 2020 - 12:16pm
The Madison City Clerk’s Office encourages voters to celebrate National Voter Education Week, October 5-9.
Monday – Be #VoteReady
Verify your voter registration at https://MyVote.wi.gov. If you have moved since you last registered, even if it is to a different unit in the same building, you will need to update your voter registration. Registering early gives you more options should you need to quarantine or isolate due to COVID-19 as Election Day approaches.
If you have a Wisconsin driver license or Wisconsin ID and your address is updated with the DMV, you may register online at https://MyVote.wi.gov. Otherwise, you may register at the following locations with proof of address:
- City Clerk’s Office -- weekdays 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
- Memorial Union -- 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, or Friday
- Union South -- 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, or Friday
- Library Dream Bus
- Goodman South Madison Library, Lakeview Library, or Meadowridge Library -- 12 – 3 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, or Friday
- Hawthorne Library, Monroe Street Library, or Pinney Library -- 12 – 3 p.m. Tuesday or Thursday
Tuesday – Be #MailReady
If you would like to receive your absentee ballot via mail, submit your request now via https://MyVote.wi.gov, an e-mail message to firstname.lastname@example.org, or a written request mailed to the City Clerk’s Office. If the Clerk’s Office doesn’t already have a copy of your voter ID on file, you will need to attach a photo or scan of your ID.
If you have already requested an absentee ballot, track the status of your absentee by visiting https://MyVote.wi.gov and selecting “Track My Ballot” at the top of the screen.
Thursday – Be #BallotReady
Find out which offices are on your ballot, and research the candidates. To see your sample ballot, visit https://MyVote.wi.gov and select “What’s On My Ballot” at the top of the screen.
Friday – Level Up Your Voting Engagement #Weready2020
