Advances in Voter Registration Modernization

  • Online Voter Registration: Wisconsin launched online voter registration through the State Elections Commission in 2017. Eligible citizens with a state driver’s license or non-driver ID can use the system to register to vote and update their registration information.
  • Election Day Registration: Wisconsin enacted Election Day registration in 1975. Individuals may register and vote at the polls on Election Day and at municipal clerk’s offices during the early voting period.

Gains from Voter Registration Modernization in Wisconsin

  • In the November 2016 general election, 355,948 voters registered on Election Day or during the early voting period.
