Welcome to the League of Women Voters in Wisconsin

The League of Women Voters of Wisconsin is a nonpartisan organization that advocates for active and informed participation in government. We bring people and communities together to consider challenging policy issues. The League provides unbiased voter education through candidate questionnaires and forums. Never supporting or opposing a candidate or political party, the League does take policy positions that our members agree upon after study and debate. We invite you to join the League.

Vote on April 7 - voter ID not needed
According to the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board, voters currently do not need to show a photo ID to receive a ballot.  The U.S. Supreme Court has blocked implementation of the voter photo ID provisions of 2011 Wisconsin Act 23.

If you need to register to vote, there are a number of ways to do it. You will have to provide proof of residence:
  • Go to My Vote Wisconsin and enter your name and birth date. On the left will be a menu that will allow you to complete a registration form. You will have to print it, sign it and bring it to your Clerk's office by April 3 or to your polling place on Election Day. 
  • Register in person at your Clerk's office by April 3. 
  • Register at your polling place on Election Day.
Be an informed voter on April 7!  Check out the League’s Candidates’ Answers voter guides: Update on voter photo ID law:  On March 23, 2015 the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear the challenge to the Wisconsin photo voter ID law. State Attorney General Brad Schimel announced that the law would not be implemented for the April 7 election, but that it will be enforced in future elections.
