Voter registration check urged ahead of fall elections
Wisconsin clerks are urging people to figure out whether you’re registered to vote.
It’s not a terribly complicated process, either, as long as you have a valid driver’s license.
Online registration is available in the Wisconsin until 11:59 p.m. Oct. 17 — in Minnesota, it’s 11:59 p.m. Oct. 16.
La Crosse municipal clerk Teri Lehrke says now would be a good time to take a few minutes on the state website MyVote.wi.gov and determine your registration status. In Minnesota, register online by clicking here.
If your Wisconsin driver’s license has current info you can register right away online.
Otherwise, you can change your address on the DMV’s website by clicking here and then register.
You can still register to vote in person, by mail or on Election Day in both states, if you want to go through those hassles.
“The online voter registration system streamlines voter registration,” Lehrke said, basically making it easier and quicker for both clerks and voters
If not, Lehrke says, you can stop in or call her office and they will “be happy to help.”
