Next Election: August 13, 2024 (PrimarY) or November 5, 2024 (General Election)

Wisconsin Youth Registration Rules: In Wisconsin teens can register to vote if they will be 18 on or before the date of the next election. But 17 year-olds cannot register online, they must use a paper form. Wisconsin also has same-day registration, but to register at the polls you need proof of residence. A state issued photo ID can serve as both a proof of residence, and a photo ID to vote.

Take the High School Voter Registration Pledge

Commit to providing information and support for students registering and voting in their first election when they turn 18.  Individual teachers, schools, and districts are all welcome to take the pledge!  Join the movement and help Wisconsin support our young voters in one of their first acts of civic engagement.
