 Voter Registration Information Minimize
Wisconsin law now requires all state residents to be registered to vote. Adams County residents who have not yet registered to vote under Wisconsin’s new voter registration law should visit their Town Clerk. It is important that all voters be properly registered in order to vote.
There are two options in which to register:
1. BY MAIL: Complete Application for Voter Registration (EB131) Form,  and mail it into your municipal clerk's office. 
     PLEASE NOTE:  As of January 1, 2003, the federal "Help America Vote Act of 2002"  
     requires any person registering to vote for the first time and submitting a registration
     application by mail to provide a copy of acceptable identification. 
     Acceptable identification consist of one of the following:
  • a current valid photo identification 
  • a copy of a current utility bill
  • bank statement
  • government check
  • pay check
  • government document that shows your name and address
     A copy of the form of identification must be included when submitting your registration  
     application.  If a copy of identification is not included, you will be required to supply it before
     being issued a ballot at the polling place or before being issued an absentee ballot.
2.  AT THE POLLING PLACE ON ELECTION DAY:  If you wish to register to vote at your polling place, you must bring proof that you have lived at your present location for 10 days preceding the election.
 Proof of Residence Minimize
For purposes of voter registration, a form of identification constitutes acceptable proof of residence if it includes:
·        A current and complete name, including both the given and family name; and
·        A current and complete residential address, including a numbered street address, if any, and the name of a municipality.
The following constitute acceptable Proof-of-Residence if the document contains the information specified above:
  1. A Wisconsin motor vehicle operator’s license.
  2. A Wisconsin identification card.
  3. Any other official identification card or license issued by a Wisconsin governmental body or unit or by an employer in the normal course of business, but not including a business card.
  4. A credit card or plate.
  5. A library card.
  6. A check-cashing or courtesy card issued by a merchant in the normal course of business.
  7. A real estate tax bill or receipt for the current year or the year preceding the date of the election.
  8. A residential lease which is effective for a period that includes election day.
  9. A university, college or technical institute fee card.
  10. A university, college or technical institute identification card.
  11. An airplane pilot’s license.
  12. A gas, electric or telephone service statement for the period commencing not earlier than 90 days before election day.
At this time, Proof-of-Residence is all that is required of a voter in order to register at the polling place on Election Day. If you cannot supply acceptable Proof-of-Residence, your registration form can be substantiated and signed by one other elector who resides in your municipality, corroborating your residency information. The corroborator must then provide acceptable Proof-of-Residence.
