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 voting@cityofmadison.com, 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.

Wednesday – Be #VotePlanReady
Review your options and create your Safe Voting Plan.  The Clerk’s Office has created a checklist you can use to determine which options work best for you.

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
Search for the Madison Votes podcast series on Apple Podcasts or Google podcasts to learn more about how your ballot will be counted, voting accessibility, COVID-19 safety precautions at the polls, and election security.
