WATCH NOW: Madison Mayoral Candidates Respond


The 2023 Spring Election is coming up on Tuesday, April 4 and we’re here to share valuable information and resources to all Wisconsin voters so you are prepared! We want you to see how the two Madison mayoral candidates responded to four questions we asked them about critical issues of importance to residents.

Here at AARP WI, we are very interested in working with local communities across the state to make them more livable for all of their citizens as they age. We believe municipalities should provide safe, walkable streets; age-friendly housing and transportation options; access to needed services; and opportunities for residents of all ages to participate in community life.

We’re hoping you will find out what your local candidates plan to do, if elected, to make their communities more livable for all ages.

Here are the candidates' answers to our questions:

Here are some important election deadlines to keep in mind:
March 31 @ 5:00 p.m. - Deadline to Register in Your Municipal Clerk’s Office - Voters may register in-person in their municipal clerk’s office during the clerk’s business hours until 5:00 p.m. on March 31.  Find your Municipal Clerk’s Contact Information here.

April 4 from 7:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m. - Register to Vote at Your Polling Place - Voters can register to vote at their polling place on Election Day, April 4, 2023.  Find your Polling Place here.

Here is some essential information you should know before you vote:

  • Information about the election, including a list of candidates and important dates to remember is available on the What’s On My Ballot website.
  • All registered voters can request a no-excuse absentee ballot and vote from home, but you’ll need a witness signature before you submit your ballot. You can cast an absentee ballot in person before Election Day at your municipal clerk’s office.
  • If you plan to vote at the polls on election day, voters must show a valid photo ID to cast their ballots.
  • Use the state’s voter registration portal to register, update your voter information, or check your registration status. You’ll need to upload a valid Wisconsin driver’s license or state-issued ID card to register online.
  • If you plan to vote by mail, download and complete a voter registration form from the state election commission’s website. Or pick one up at your municipal clerk’s office or ask your clerk to mail one to you. You’ll need to include a copy of a document that proves your residence, such as a Wisconsin driver’s license or state-issued ID card, a recent utility bill, pay stub or other document listed on the election commission’s website. Mail completed applications to your municipal clerk’s office.
  • You can also drop off a completed voter registration form or register in person at your municipal clerk’s office. Hours and availability depend on individual localities. You can also register to vote at your polling station on Election Day.
