All Wisconsin voters must be registered with their municipality before voting. Voters only need to register one time and are only required to re-register after a name or residence change occurs. Eligible residents can register anytime by mail-in, in person at the City Clerk’s office from 8:00 a.m. to Noon and 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday or at the polls, although you are encouraged to register in advance to reduce your wait time on Election Day. Residents will need to provide an acceptable identifying document that constitutes proof of residence such as a Wisconsin driver’s license. For more information about voter registration, please feel free to contact the City Clerk’s office at 608-723-4246. 

The polling place for city residents is located in the Senior Citizen Center at City Hall and the hours are 7:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.
