Online Election Management Links


Here is a set of quick-link buttons for online election management applications. Included are WisVote (Election Management), Canvass (CRS), MyVote Wisconsin, BADGER Voters, and Access Elections.





WisVote (Election Management) All the components of an election are entered here: Absentee Applications, Ballots, Candidates, Polling Places, Voters etc. Many of the other election systems rely on the data entered into WisVote.

Canvass (CRS) is a database where canvass results can be entered after each election. After Election Day, when the official canvass has been completed, clerks may upload electronic results from a file generated by their voting machines, or they may enter canvass results by hand.

MyVote Wisconsin allows registered voters to access information specific to them. Prospective voters may registration online or sign and deliver to the municipal clerk. In addition, there is a section for military and permanent overseas voters to request an absentee ballot and access their absentee ballot online. Absentee ballot request and absentee ballot access features work with WisVote and notify clerks when voters register or request an absentee ballot.

BADGER Voters is designed to allow users to request, receive a quote, purchase, and download Wisconsin voter registration and election participation data. This data is derived from WisVote.

The Learning Center (TLC) offers learning materials designed to help get the most out of WisVote, Wisconsin's new election management system. In addition to the traditional user manual, interactive tutorials and demonstration overviews are available for viewing.

Access Elections is an Elections Division Polling Place Accessibility Audit Reporting System.
