General Election Resources

Photo ID Required To Vote

Remember that you will need to show a Photo ID to the poll workers on election day.  For most residents, that will probably be your Wisconsin driver license.  There are several other acceptable Photo ID's such as a U.S. passport, a military ID card or a State Photo ID card available for free from the Wisconsin Department of Motor Vehicles.

Register To Vote

Registering to vote in your local municipality is the first step to participate in any election in Wisconsin.  All voters must be registered.  You only need to register once unless you move to a new home address, in which case you would need to register again with the new address.  When you register to vote, you are simply declaring the exact address where you live and providing proof of residence at that address.

The registration process does two things:  it limits each voter to one specific address and it uses that address to determine all of the voting jurisdictions that apply to you for each election.  The process of voter registration places you within one specific voting ward of your local municipality (village, city or town).  The Town of Lodi is divided into five voting wards.  The Town of Lodi also has three special voting districts:  the Okee Sanitary District, the Harmony Grove Sanitary District, and the Harmony Grove Lake Protection District.

You can register to vote electronically at MyVote Wisconsin, by mail, or in person at the Town Hall.  Please bring your Photo ID (and a proof of residence if your Photo ID will not also accomplish that) to the Town Hall during weekday business hours.  It is recommended to register ahead of time, however It is also possible to register to vote on the day of the election.

What Offices Appear On The Ballot

Ballots can include offices at every level of government (local, county, state and federal).  Terms of office vary for different positions.  See our Elected Representatives for the Town of Lodi page for a complete summary of every possible elected office that may appear on a Town of Lodi ballot.  One or more referendum questions could also be on the ballot, if any have been filed.
