Today is National Voter Registration Day! We are forty-two days out from the November 3rd Presidential Election and the Clerk’s Office operations to prepare for the big day are in full swing.

First celebrated in 2012, National Voter Registration Day is a nonpartisan civic holiday celebrating our democracy seeking to create broad awareness of voter registration opportunities.

Here at the City of Madison, we seek to take a data driven approach to managing our services. For this election, we are working in partnership with When We All Vote’s Civic Cities Initiative to ensure maximum turnout possible. Recently, When We All Vote shared with us this Civic Cities Mayors Dashboard for Madison, WI. The dashboard shows us things like the zip codes in our city that have the most unregistered voters.

To ensure we are making progress on reducing the number of unregistered voters, the Clerk’s Office staff will be joined by hundreds of volunteers today and in the coming weeks to turn those community residents into registered voters.

I encourage you to check to make sure you are registered at your current address. If you have a Wisconsin driver license or Wisconsin ID, you can register at the same site. If you don’t have a Wisconsin ID, you can stop by the Clerk’s Office between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. with proof of address to register in person. The building is locked, but the office is open. Go to the doors that are farthest to the right when you are facing the building.

Please make sure you are registered to vote and encourage your friends and neighbors to register and vote in the November 3rd Presidential Election.
