Before you cast your ballot Tuesday, you’ll need to register to vote and prove that you live at your current address.

At this point, the only way to register to vote is at the polls on Election Day. To do that, you need to fill out a voter registration form and bring it in with a proof of residency document. You will need this proof of residency to complete your voter registration.

If you’ve never registered to vote, you’ll need to register before voting, and if you’ve moved since the last time you voted, you will need to re-register with your new address.

A list of acceptable proof of residency documents is available here, although the University of Wisconsin has a voter enrollment verification document that would work. That document can be printed off the university’s online Student Center. Make sure your address is current on the document.

You can print off a voter registration form from the Government Accountability Board’s website — where you can also check whether you need to re-register to vote.

Directions on how to print out both documents are below:
