If you have lived in WI for at least 28 days you can vote.
Anyone wishing to vote in the state of Wisconsin has three options to register:
1. BY MAIL: ...postmarked no later than the 20th day (3rd Wednesday) before the election.
2. IN PERSON: Register in the municipal clerk’s office up to 5 p.m. or the close of business whichever is later on the Friday before the election.
3. AT THE POLLING PLACE ON ELECTION DAY: If you wish to register to vote at your polling place, you must bring proof that you reside at your present location. For purposes of voter registration, acceptable forms of proof of residence must include:
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.
NOTE: Proof of residency is required for voter registration and must be current and valid. The purpose of the proof of residency document is to establish the voters current address, not to prove that the voter complies with the 28 consecutive day residency requirement. The voters sworn statement on the registration form that they meet the 28-day requirement shall be presumed to be true unless the inspector or a challenger has first-hand knowledge sufficient to question the certification.
Thank you for the additonal info, Thackney.
I don’t understand why we didn’t think of this before or why the snowbirds haven’t been pinpointed.
Wow, no wonder they are busing in Union people from MI.
VOTE ERALY, VOTE OFTEN
Then go take a VIDEO CAMERA to record fraud at other places!!!
How long do you have to be dead in Wisconsin to vote?...............
No. You can only vote here legally if you call WI your home residence. That means you must hold a WI ID and file WI income tax, amongst other things. The 28 days is for folks that have decided to move here and call WI their home.
I feel so disenfranchised!! Here in Montana this morning I had to show my ID and the pollworker studied it and my face and we chatted about how my hair color had changed, I stated my home addresss, told them how to pronounce my name, signed my name and then I got to vote! No fair!! /sarc
Attention all felons, college students, dems from other states, the deceased, the illegal aliens, union thugs, and all other sundry and assorted neer-do-wells: VOTE EARLY AND OFTEN!
Dang. Is it too late to Skype a random polling place in WI (I did visit Madison a couple times...) and use my 53 votes? Or was that three-fifths of a vote?
No. What I said is correct.
" They were broadcasting on all the news channels this morning, that all you need to do is bring in a bill to register and they cannot require you to show an ID.
Irrelevant. You don't need to bring in anything. That's, because their's been an injunction placed on the voter ID law. That however has no effect on the fact that in order to vote here(as a non-student) one must call WI home.
The subject is the requirements in the law regarding eligibility to vote. Registration is irrelevant and so is the fact that anyone might, or might not commit any criminal act, such as voter fraud.
You still have to provide your WI DL number, or your State ID number to register. The registrar isn’t allowed to look at it, but you have to say it. THe ability to “vouch” for your neighbor has been removed.
I sure hope Walker and the legislature get this straightened out before November. I work at the polls and it is so stupid to be unable to LOOK at the DL while I am writing it down on the application form. Normal people don’t care, and cheaters can take advantage.
I’ve been to the EAA fly in at Oshkosh several times. If I were a democrat, would that qualify me to vote?
