As part of our continuing efforts to keep elections safe in the State of Wisconsin, the Elections Commission has upgraded its agency website to a secure connection.

The secure URL for the website is now https://elections.wi.gov. The old URL using http will still work, but it may take a little longer to redirect to the secure connection. This change ensures that communications between the site and visitors cannot be intercepted, read or modified. Visitors can therefore feel more confident that the information they are receiving from the WEC is authentic.

If you have links on your website to the Wisconsin Elections Commission site, please update them to https.

Please contact the Elections Help Desk at elections@wi.gov or 608-261-2028 if you have any questions regarding this update.
