Clerk’s Office Encourages Voters to Verify their Registration Status
Friday, January 10, 2020 - 8:47am
At this time, the Wisconsin Elections Commission has not issued any directives regarding voters listed on the 2019 ERIC movers mailing list and have not updated their registration status. The Madison City Clerk’s Office strongly encourages voters to verify their registration status.
Voters with online access may verify their registration by visiting https://myvote.wi.gov/en-us/. Toward the top of the webpage, they may select “Search by Name” or “My Voter Info” to search for their voter registration. The website will prompt the voter to enter their name and date of birth.
Once the voter’s registration information appears on the screen, the voter should look for a status of “You are Registered to Vote!” and should verify that the current address listed is accurate. If the voter sees a green button that says, “Click Here to Confirm Your Address,” that means the voter was included in the mailing the Elections Commission recently sent to all voters it believed may have moved. (See the attached image for an example.) It is imperative that these voters click the green button to confirm their address, if accurate, or click the gray “Update Address” button to update their voter registration online.
Voters without access to the internet are encouraged to contact the City Clerk’s Office to verify their voter registration status.
