Election Day Manual


Elections in Wisconsin are conducted at the local level. Responsibility falls on election officials to ensure that every election is conducted in a manner that is fair, transparent, and accessible to all.

Many changes have occurred in the way elections are conducted in the State of Wisconsin over the past 10 years. These changes have not been easy but due to the dedication, patience, and hard-work of election officials at all levels of government, we have transitioned well into the new requirements. The Wisconsin Elections Commission aims to continue to administer excellence in elections across Wisconsin. However, on Election Day it is up to the local election officials to protect the integrity of the election process.

The Election Day Manual was developed to serve as a comprehensive reference to help election officials meet the challenges of Election Day. It is our hope that you refer to it often and make use of the other resources cited throughout the manual. As always, Elections Commission staff is here to provide answers and advice to assist you in fulfilling your obligations to ensure public confidence in the Wisconsin election process.
