Voter Public Access
Am I properly registered? Who are my elected representatives? How can I contact them? Where is my polling place? What is on the ballot for the next election? These are all common questions voters have. Thanks to the Statewide Voter Registration System, all these questions, and more, can be answered by "My Vote Wisconsin".  "My Vote Wisconsin" is a website that is the culmination of all the information collected in the Statewide Voter Registration System.

If you are a current registered voter in the state of Wisconsin, you can search for information in VPA by using your name. When your personal record comes up, you will be able to see the address at which you are currently registered. Remember, you must be registered in your current municipality in order to be able to vote. There are a few exceptions to this rule such as when you have moved to your municipality less than 10 days prior to an election. If you have moved to your current address less than 10 days prior to an election, you must vote in your prior municipality. There is an exception in Presidential elections only for those people who have moved to a Wisconsin municipality from out of state during that 10-day period. Those electors may vote in their new Wisconsin municipality, but they will be given only a Presidential ballot. If you have questions regarding your qualifications to vote, please contact the municipal clerk.

If you know that you are not registered in the state of Wisconsin, but you would like to see the information available for your current address, you may search VPA by your address. All information available for your municipality will be shown on VPA.

If you must vote on a provisional ballot on Election Day, you may check on the status of your provisional ballot in the days following the election using the third option in VPA. The municipal clerk or chief inspector at your polling place will give you all the information you will need at the time of your provisional vote.

 Please note that sample ballots are only available in VPA approximately one month prior to an election. Municipal clerks must perform certain steps in the Statewide Voter Registration System before the sample ballot can appear. If an election is near and your sample ballot is not appearing in VPA, please continue to check back periodically.
