General Election - November 6, 2018

Are you registered to vote?  Have you moved or changed your name since you last registered?  You can verify your voter registration information here.  You can also register using this website or stopping at the Clerk's Office.

While Election Day registration is acceptable in the State of Wisconsin, we expect a large turn-out for the November Election and being registered prior to Election Day will streamline the voting process for you.  If you need assistance, please contact the Clerk's Office at (608)527-3677.

Remember to bring your voter Photo ID with you on Election Day.  Information on acceptable photo IDs can be found here.

Additional information on voting and the election process can be found here, or contact the Clerk's Office at (608)527-3677.
