"Democracy is not a spectator sport."
- Marian Wright Edelman

Registering to vote is the first step to participating in our democracy. If you have moved, changed your name, or have not voted in a while, you might need to reregister. The LWV recommends that all Wisconsin voters check to be sure that their voter registration is current.
