Voter Registration

Am I Going To Be Kicked Off The Registered Voter Roll?

Wisconsin as a battleground state in the 2020 election is a fact that has been well-established. Now, two sides are fighting over the status of about 230,000 registered voters in the state. One side wants to purge these residents from the state’s voter rolls, saying they failed to update their address after moving – as required by state law. The other side says an imminent purge violates their constitutional right to due process and wants to delay kicking anyone off the voter rolls for as long as they can.

According to the Wisconsin Election Commission, residents can check whether they’re registered to vote, or whether they’ve been sent a “moving” letter on MyVote Wisconsin Click this link to go to MyVote Wisconsin. If state election officials sent you a letter because you may have moved, that will be noted on your voter information page on MyVote.

If you did not move, you can tell us you still have the same address. If you did move, you can reregister to vote on the MyVote website, assuming your address information is current with DMV. If it’s not current, you can update it with DMV and come back to MyVote and register online, election officials said.
