the 20th day (3rd Wednesday) before the election.
Please Note: State and federal law requires that any voter
submitting a registration application by mail provide a copy of an acceptable
identifying document that provides proof of residence. Please note that voters registering by mail may not use a
residential lease as proof of residence. The copy of the form of proof of
residence must be included when submitting the registration application. If a
copy of proof of residence is not included, the elector will be required to
supply it before being issued a ballot at the polling place or before being
issued an absentee ballot in the City Clerk's office.

If you wish to register to
vote at your polling place you must provide proof of residence, which includes
a current utility bill, lease, or other official document showing your name and
current address. A list of acceptable documents is available at http://gab.wi.gov. Before Election Day, you must
have lived at your current address for at least 28 days to be eligible to vote,
