Voters can register at the City Clerk’s office prior to the election date or at the polling place on election day. Voters should bring their Wisconsin driver’s license or state ID card when registering. If the information on your license does not list your current address, additional documentation with the current address will be needed to establish residency. A voter must have lived at their residence for at least 28 consecutive days prior to registering. Remember, you must change your voter registration if you are new to the city, have changed residences within the city or if you had a legal name change.  Please contact the City Clerk’s office for your proper polling place, which is dictated by address.

Anyone planning on being out of town or unable to make it to the polling place on election day can cast an absentee ballot in the Clerk’s office, or request a ballot in writing.  Requests for ballots should be mailed to the City Clerk, 2424 15th Avenue, South Milwaukee, WI, 53172.  The request must list the voters resident address, where the ballot should be mailed if different, the election for which they are requesting the ballot, and must be signed by the voter. The last day to vote in person absentee in the Clerk’s office is Friday before the election.

Remember under the new law the poll book must be signed by the voter to receive a ballot.

Area residents who need to register to vote in Wisconsin should remember that their Wisconsin  Driver’s License number is an important key to voter registration.

Federal law now requires voters who have a driver’s license to use the number from that license for the registration process.  In the new Statewide Voter Registration System (SVRS), the driver’s license number used on the voter registration form will be cross-checked with Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT) records to make sure that the person listed with that number is the same person who registered to vote.

Voters who register or re-register in their clerk’s office, by mail, or at the polling place on Election Day will be asked to list their driver’s license number on the registration form.  Local election officials do not have to see the driver’s license or check it, but will require any voter with a Wisconsin license to use the license number to register.  (However, to use a driver’s license to prove a voter’s residence, a poll worker must see the license.)

For voters who do not have a driver’s license, the number from a state DOT-issued ID card may be used. Only if the voter has neither a Wisconsin DL or state ID can the last four digits of their Social Security number be used to fulfill the federal requirement.  People who use false identification numbers to register to vote can be prosecuted for voter fraud.

In rare cases, Wisconsinites do not have a driver’s license, state ID or a Social Security number.  However, they may still register to vote.  Those voters must check a box on the voter registration form that attests that they have none of the three and turn in the form, and will need to provide additional documents to prove proof of residency.
