You must be 18 years of age to vote.

All voters in Wisconsin must be at least 18 years of age on the day of the election to be eligible to vote. Persons who are otherwise eligible to vote may register to vote at 17 years of age if they will be 18 by the next election.

Citizenship is documented through a U.S. birth certificate or a Certificate of Naturalization, but proof of citizenship is not required to vote. Green card or visa status does not qualify a person to vote in Wisconsin elections.

You can only vote once.

Each voter is eligible to vote only once in any given election. You are not eligible to vote if you have already cast a ballot (regular or absentee) in that election.

(You may register to vote if you will meet the 28-day requirement by election day.)
If you have moved to a new Wisconsin address within 28 days of an election, you may be qualified to vote from your former address.
If you have moved to Wisconsin from another state less than 28 days before an election, you are only eligible to vote for President and Vice-President in Wisconsin until you achieve the 28 days.

Who is not eligible to vote in Wisconsin?

You cannot vote if you are serving a felony sentence.

 If you are currently serving any portion of a felony sentence, including probation or supervision, you are not eligible to vote in Wisconsin. Once your felony sentence is complete your right to vote is reinstated, but you will need to re-register.

You cannot vote if you’ve been adjudicated incompetent.

If a judge has specifically determined you to be incompetent to vote, you are not eligible to vote in Wisconsin. If you have been adjudicated incompetent, but not specifically incompetent to vote, then you are still eligible to vote.

You are not eligible to vote if you have placed a bet or a wager on the outcome of the election.
