Voter Registration & Absentee Voting
Our goal is for every eligible voter in Christiana to be supported in exercising their voting rights. Your vote is your voice! Call the Town Office at (608) 423-3816 for additional information.
myvote.wi.gov is the State of Wisconsin website for voter registration, updating your address, or applying for an absentee ballot. However, in-office registration is required during the last 20 days prior to an election. You will need to bring a photo ID and proof of residency to register.
Proof of residency can be a Wisconsin driver’s license, a utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, government document, or lease. The document must include your name at your Town of Christiana address. It is possible to register at the polls on Election Day, but plan on spending some extra time.
A Photo ID is required to vote. The most common types of acceptable photo ID include: a Wisconsin DOT-issued driver's license, a Wisconsin DOT-issued identification card, a Military ID card issued by the U.S. Uniformed Services, or a U.S. passport book or card. The photo ID is only for proof of your identity, it does NOT require your current address.
IMPORTANT: An out-of-state driver’s license is not an acceptable ID in Wisconsin! However, a Wisconsin driver’s license or passport may be expired if the expiration date is after November 8, 2022 (the date of the last federal election). There are other forms of acceptable ID for voting purposes; go to: www.bringit.wi.gov.
In-Person Absentee Voting
When the ballots arrive, in-person absentee voting is available at the Town Hall during regular office hours or by appointment. For the August 9, Partisan Primary Election In-Person Absentee voting is from July 26- August 7, 2022 (no voter registration on August 6&7 per state law).
Absentee Ballot Requests
