City of Madison holds voter registration drive to answer questions ahead of November election

MADISON, Wis. — Madison election officials held a voter registration drive at Meadowridge Library on Friday to help individuals sign up and answer any questions they had about the voting process.

“We try to make it as easy as we can for people to vote and have that vote counted,” City of Madison Deputy Clerk Jim Verbick said.

The voter registration drive comes just before the closed registration period of Oct. 19, when the city will no longer accept registration by mail or online.

After that closed period, however, one can still register and vote at their nearest public library beginning two weeks before the election.

Election officials recommend that voters check the City of Madison Clerk’s Office webpage to find out which forms are acceptable to show as proof of residence prior to registration.

Questions about proof of residence and registration documents can also be answered by the election officials at public libraries beginning Oct. 25.

In the meantime, election officials encourage voters to visit to find their polling place, check sample ballots or request an absentee ballot before the closed period.
