Find Your Polling Place:

Where you vote is dependent on where you live in Stevens Point.

You can refer to this map in order to locate your polling place. Note that the UWSP campus is split between several different voting districts, so not all on-campus residents vote in the same location.

How do I register?

Registering to vote is simple!

The first thing you want to do is figure out if you are already registered or not. An easy way to do that is to follow this link and use the site to see if you are currrently registered. As a college student, there are some special rules that give you the choice of voting either in your hometown or here in Stevens Point. Generally speaking, if you have lived in a place for 28 days prior to the election you should be able to vote. If you have not voted in Stevens Point before, you will need to register prior to voting.

There are a few different registration options:

1) You can register online

2) You can register by mail

2) You can register with the City Clerk

3) You can register on election day at your polling place



Regardless of how you register, you will need to provide proof of your current address. You will also need to provide a valid driver license or the last 4 digits of your Social Security number if you have either of them.

You need to register to vote if any of the following are true for you:

- You have never registered to vote in Wisconsin

- Your address has changed since the last time you voted

- Your legal name has changed since the last time you voted

More information on voter regisitration can be found here.

What do I need to bring?

Wisconsin voters need to show an acceptable photo ID when voting at the polls or by absentee ballot. There are some exceptions to the law when voting by absentee ballot.

If you need to register at the polls on election day, you will need to bring proof of address. This page provides a list of acceptable documents including the option of a UWSP Voter ID Enrollment Letter that can be printed via your myPoint account.

All you have to do at the polls is show your ID, sign the poll list, and actually cast your vote.

  • Wear a mask to keep yourself and others safe!
  • Bring some water and a snack if you think you will be waiting in line for a while.
  • Dress for the weather--safe distancing may mean you could be waiting in line outside.
