Election Information for Town of Addison

Elections for Town of Addison residents are held at the Addison Town Hall, 127 First Street, Allenton, Wisconsin.
Polls are open from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Before you can vote, whether in person on election day, or absentee, you must be registered and you must show a photo ID.

  • Please noteAbsentee ballots may not be hand-carried outside of the Town Hall.
    You can not pick up an absentee ballot for anyone else and take it to them.

2020 is a Presidential Election year, which means you will soon be finding voter registration forms and absentee ballot request forms in your mailbox.  A mailing from the Wisconsin Elections Commission with Absentee Voting information will be sent  in September 2020 to all Wisconsin registered voters who do not already have an absentee ballot request on file.  Any other mailings are not from your municipal clerk or the Wisconsin Elections Commission, even though they may appear to be.  They are sent by special interest groups and the prefilled voter information on these forms is not always accurate.  To ensure you are properly registered, or to apply for an absentee ballot, please follow the instructions on the mailing from the Wisconsin Elections Commission, visit myvote.wi.gov, follow the instructions below, or contact the Town Clerk at 262 629-5420 or clerk@addisonwi.org.

Public Information

Wisconsin requires a photo ID to Vote.

Statewide Voter Registration requires all electors to be registered before voting, beginning in 2006.  Qualified Electors may register to vote in the Town Clerk’s office during regular office hours, with the exception of the Saturday, Sunday and Monday before an election.  Registrations will also be taken on election day.  Persons wishing to register to vote must provide proof  of residence.  A valid Wisconsin Driver’s license with a current Town of Addison address is the easiest form to use for this  requirement.  If this is not available, contact the Town Clerk for other options.
