City of Madison Clerk’s Office provides guidance ahead of Election Day

MADISON, Wis. – Election Day is Tuesday, and the Madison City Clerk’s Office has some tips to make your day go smoothly.

  1. Check your neighborhood — Many Madison polling places have changed due to redistricting, so know before you go. You can check your polling station on the the city website.
  2. Bring Acceptable ID — Election officials do not verify your address, but they verify your identity. Make sure your ID is acceptable to vote in Wisconsin.
    • These include a driver’s license or ID card issued by WisDOT, a military ID card issued by a US uniformed service, a US passport, a identification from a federally recognized tribe in Wisconsin or a student ID from an accredited university or college in Wisconsin that contains a date of issue, the student’s signature, and a date expiring after April 5, 2020.
  3. You can register to vote on election day — If you haven’t yet registered to vote, don’t worry. Bring proof of residency with you, such as an online utility bill or bank statement, and you can register to vote at the polls.
  4. Get your absentee ballot on time — Your absentee ballot must be returned by election day for it to count. If yours is not yet mailed, bring it, sealed in a filled out absentee envelope, to your polling place on Election Day. Only you can return your ballot.
  5. Check your sample ballot — Know your choices by visiting the MyVote website before you go to the polls.
