MADISON, WI –  While the League of Women Voters explore legal strategies concerning last Friday's court order to immediately purge 234,000 voters from the rolls, it is important for voters to know they can check their voter registration in advance of when they go to vote on Election Day to ensure this action does not impact their registration and plan to vote.

Voters can be proactive by checking their voter information on Wisconsin’s online voter registration website, myvote.wi.gov, or by contacting their municipal clerk. Any voter who received the Wisconsin Elections Commission letter that they may have moved will have a notice on their record on the My Voter Info page asking voters to confirm their address. If voters have moved since registering to vote, they will need to re-register at their current address. The League is here to help anyone who may need assistance navigating the registration process. Contact the League online lwvwi.org, by email or phone, lwvwisconsin@lwvwi.org or 608-256-0827.

Additionally, the recent litigation highlights how important it is that Wisconsin has Election Day Registration where voters can register and vote on Election Day. Yet, even with Election Day Registration, the League advises voters to double-check their registration status and make any necessary updates in advance of the 2020 elections. Wisconsin residents can register to vote online at myvote.wi.gov.

The League will continue to assist voters so they are informed and confident to go to the polls in 2020.
