Voter Registration

In order to vote in Waterloo, you need to have lived here for at least 10 days prior to Election Day [See NOTE (1)].  Additionally, you'll need to fill out a Voter Registration Application  and provide proof of residence.  The most popular ways to prove residence are a Bank Statement, Utility Bill (not a credit card or insurance bill) or if your Driver's License has your current address listed.  To see the full list of documents you can use to prove residency, click here

NOTE (1): Federal Judge Peterson’s 2017 order in the One Wisconsin Institute court case changed several rules and procedures, including changing the residency requirement for voter registration from 28 days to 10 days and allowing for expanded in-person absentee voting hours. Both parties to the lawsuit have appealed aspects of the decision to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. It is difficult to estimate when the Court of Appeals may rule on the appeals. The 10 day requirement reflects deadlines established by the court order which are not consistent with the language in the Wisconsin statutes.


Absentee Voting

Anyone can request an absentee ballot, for any reason.  If you would like an absentee ballot, simply fill out the Absentee Ballot Application  and mail, fax, or email to the City Clerk's Office.  Once we receive your application, we will mail your ballot out to you.  It is important that you have your ballot witnessed (including the signature and witness's address) by a US Citizen or your ballot will not be counted!
