Eligible Wisconsin Voters who have a current and valid Wisconsin Driver License or Wisconsin State ID Card can register completely online at MyVote.

Voting complaints? Here's How to Take Action.

If you are a voter with a disability who has experienced an accessibility concern related to voting, the Wisconsin Election Commission would like to hear from you. The WEC has added a new option on their Complaints page for reporting accessibility-related concerns such as polling place accessibility, website accessibility, curbside voting, or voting equipment.

Your complaint will allow the WEC to more efficiently address any barriers for voters. The Commission will also use this information to inform training and clerk communication related to accessibility. Make a difference – file a complaint.

NOTE: If you are requesting formal determination or remedies, you should file a sworn complaint. For assistance filing a complaint, contact the Disability Rights Wisconsin Voter Hotline at 1-844-DIS-VOTE or info@disabilityVote.org
