In order to register to vote in Wisconsin, you must bring either your Wisconsin driver’s license or the last four digits of your social security number. You’ll need to register or re-register to vote if you’re voting for the first time, moved since you last voted or changed your legal name since you last voted. Remember, it doesn’t matter who you vote for as long as you vote!
