The Wisconsin Elections Commission staff will soon be revising the Wisconsin Voter Registration Application (EL-131) to make it more usable.  We are advising you about the redesign now so you do not print bulk quantities of the old form before the 2020 election cycle. You may use any existing stock before transitioning to the updated form.

We will work with voters, local election officials and other interested parties to review and test the current form for usability to determine the type and extent of the revisions necessary for improvement.  We plan to present the revised form to the Wisconsin Elections Commission for approval at its September 24, 2019 meeting.  We look forward to working with interested parties to create an updated version of the form that is easier for voters to complete and for election officials to verify and enter into the voter registration database.  

Please contact us at elections@wi.gov or by phone at (608) 261-2028 if you would like to help with this project.  We would also be happy to discuss any questions or concerns you have about the scope, timeline or specific details regarding this project.
