Voter Registration Drives – Beware!

Voter Registration Application El-131 – (REV 2020-06)

Voter registration drives will increase in 2020.  These organizations are not affiliated with the Village of West Milwaukee and while most organizations are legitimate, this is also an area of opportunity for scammers.   Be aware that voter registration requires personal information such as your date of birth and driver’s license number.   Never give personal information to anyone you don’t know and trust.   The safest means to register to vote includes the following: 

  1. Online at MyVote Wisconsin:  https://myvote.wi.gov/en-us/
  2. By mail (complete the voter registration form):(updated with the 28 day requirement change)  https://elections.wi.gov/forms/el-131-fillable
    1. Mail with Proof of Residency to:  Village Clerk, 4755 West Beloit Road, West Milwaukee, WI 53214
  3. In-person at your Municipal Clerk’s Office
  4. In-person at your assigned polling location on Election Day 7am-8pm

Note:  All options require acceptable proof of residency.
