Celebrate Municipal Clerks Week: Nominate a Great Clerk

The 54th Annual Municipal Clerks Week is April 30th – May 6th 2023. Join the Disability Vote Coalition to recognize the important work of Wisconsin Municipal Clerks in administering our elections.

Municipal clerks are in charge of elections for your city, town, or village. Clerks handle voter registrations and absentee ballots. They have an important role in making voting accessible and welcoming.

We invite you to submit a nomination to recognize the work of your Municipal Clerk. Your nomination can highlight best practices, such as supporting the use of accessible voting machines, curbside voting, or assistance with absentee voting and early voting. You can look up your Clerk’s name and contact information here on My Vote Wisconsin: https://myvote.wi.gov/en-us/My-Municipal-Clerk

Nominate a clerk today! Nominations will be shared with clerks and posted on our website! Submit your nomination as soon as possible so we can recognize your clerk.

Complete this form to nominate your clerk:
We Need to Hear from You: Take the Voter Experience Survey

The League of Women Voters of Wisconsin and partners are conducting a survey to learn about voters' experience during the April 4th election. Please take the survey!

It will help the League and the Disability Vote Coalition learn about your voting experience, any challenges you had, and what worked well. Your input will help us to make Wisconsin elections accessible!
Guardianship and Voting Rights

In Wisconsin, people under guardianship retain the right to vote unless the court expressly removes that right.

Disability Rights Wisconsin has developed resources that explain how to determine if you have retained or lost the right to vote, and, if you have lost the right to vote, how to petition the court to restore your right to vote.

Help us get the word out! We would love to share these resources with you. If you have a guardian, if you are a guardian, or if your organization supports people who have a guardian, here’s a great chance to learn more about voting rights.

To order copies of our resources, please email your request to info@disabilityvote.org See below for links to our website pages on Guardianship and Voting.
