I'm a homeless person

Wisconsin’s election law embodies a commitment to facilitate voting for all qualified individuals, including those who happen to be homeless at the time of the election.

If you are homeless, you may use a letter from a shelter or other organization providing services to the homeless as proof of residence when registering to vote. The G.A.B. has provided a sample letter at the link below.

You will need to show a photo ID when voting at the polls, or provide a copy of your photo ID if you are voting absentee.

It is essential that all qualified Wisconsin electors be provided with the opportunity to help choose the elected governmental representatives who develop and implement policies that affect them.
