Election Information

POLLING LOCATION & HOURS:  Town of Forestville residents vote at the Forestville Town Hall located at 7701 County Road H in Maplewood, Wisconsin,   beginning at 7:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m.

PHOTO ID:  Wisconsin residents are required to show proof of identification at the polls.  In most cases, this will be a Wisconsin driver's license or Wisconsin issued identification card.  Photo ID requirements are different than proof of residence requirements.  Your driver's license may not have your current address, but it will have your name and photo ID--that is sufficient for Photo ID.  The Wisconsin Division of Motor Vehicles has a process to allow people to obtain a free State ID card for voting purposes, even if the person does not have a birth certificate.

TO REGISTER:   Please contact the town clerk at 920-856-6551 to register.  If you are a U.S. citizen, over the age of 18 and have been a Town of Forestville resident for at least 10 days, you are eligible to register with appropriate proof of residence.  New residents can register on Election Day.  You can save time and avoid confusion by registering ahead of time by mail or in person at the clerk's office. Be sure to bring proof of residency when you register.
