Press Release - Voter Registration Drive, June 28th

Office of the Rock County Clerk

The Rock County Clerk’s Office and 19 of the 29 municipal clerks that serve Rock County will be participating in the Voter Registration Drive on Tuesday, June 28th.  Your municipal clerks know that the 2016 Elections are forecasted to have record high voter turnout and want to do everything possible to make the Elections run as smoothly as possible for everyone. That is why clerks across the state are hosting Voter Registration Drives on Tuesday, June 28th. The greatest thing a new voter (or someone that needs to update their current registration) can do to help make Election Day a positive experience, is to register during the Open Registration Period, if able to do so.

What are the requirements to register or update a registration?

  • 18 years old on or before the NEXT election. The next state-wide election is August 9, 2016, so anyone who is now 17 and has a birthday on or before August 9, 2016, can register now if they meet the rest of the requirements.
  • You must be a U.S. Citizen, not currently serving a felony conviction (either jail time or probation), nor been declared incompetent or ineligible to vote by a judge.
  • You must have resided in your home for at least 28 days prior to Election Day in order to establish a new voting location.
  • You must supply your WI Driver’s License or WI State Id Number if ever issued.
  • You must show Proof of Residency. The document must list your full name, your current address, and was issued recent enough to meet date requirements.  The most common item used is a utility bill less than 90 days old.  Paycheck, pay stub, bank statement (not a credit card), or your WI driver’s license with your current address can be used.

Voters can check their voter registration at MyVote.wi.gov.

Regardless if your municipality is participating in a Voter Registration Drive on June 28, 2016 by extending their hours or adding staff, ALL voters can register or update a registration any time during their clerk’s regular office hours, except for the day before an election.  Please check with your municipal clerk to learn more about how and when you can register or update your registration.

Your Rock County Clerk’s Office can also take voter registrations for any Rock County residents during the Open Registration Period.

For the Partisan Primary on August 9, 2016, the Open Registration Period ends on July 20, 2016.
For the General Election on November 8, 2016, the Open Registration Period is August 10, 2016 through October 19, 2016.
