Thank you for your interest in the voting process in the City of Merrill.  A Wisconsin Voter Registration Application (EL-131) must be completed to register to vote in Wisconsin.  In addition to completing the form, Wisconsin Statutes require that voters provide a valid document establishing their proof of residence as part of the voter registration application.  This requirement applies to all voters who are not military or permanent overseas voters. 

Valid forms of proof of residence must include the voter’s name and current address, and may be any of the following:

1. A current and valid Wisconsin driver license or identification card.
2. Any other official identification card or license issued by a Wisconsin governmental body or unit.
3. Any identification card issued by an employer in the normal course of business and bearing a photo of the card holder, but not including a business card.
4. A real estate tax bill or receipt for the current year of the year preceding the date of the election.
5. A university, college or technical college identification card (must include photo) ONLY if the voter provides a fee receipt dated within the last 9 months or the institution provides a certified housing list to the municipal clerk.
6. A gas, electric, or telephone service statement (utility bill) for the period commencing no earlier than 90 days before the day registration is made.
7. Bank statement.
8. Paycheck.
9. A check or other document issued by a unit of government.
10. An affidavit on public or private social service agency letterhead identifying a homeless voter and describing the individual’s residence for voting purposes.
11. Residential lease that is effective on the date of registration (not valid if you are registering by mail).

The Wisconsin Voter Registration Application can be obtained from the City Clerk’s office located in City Hall at 1004 E. First Street.  Alternatively, you can fill out the application online at https://myvote.wi.gov and return it to our office with the appropriate proof of residence documentation. 

If you choose to register to vote at the polls on election day, you will need to provide the same proof of residence information.  The registration application will be available at the polling place for you to complete.  You will also need to provide photo ID at the polls when voting.  To determine where you vote, you can contact our office or can search that information on the MyVote website as well.
