Wisconsin voters have to live at their current address for 28 or more days in order to vote using that address. If a voter moved 9 or less days before Election Day, they can vote at their old Wisconsin address.

Remember if you moved recently you will have to re-register at your new polling location on Election Day.

Under state law, a voter can request up to three hours of unpaid time off to vote on Election Day. However, the request for time off must be made in advance to give the employer time to adjust work schedules.
