WHEN TO VOTE
For most people, the best option for voting now is to vote on Election Day, which is on Tuesday, November 3rd. Polls will be open from 7:00am to 8:00pm. Remember, if you are in line to vote at 8:00pm, the poll workers are legally obligated to allow you to vote.
If you requested an absentee ballot from the City of Oshkosh, you have the option of either completing it and bringing it to the polls on Election Day or leaving it at home and completing a ballot as you would normally on Election Day.
Important Dates & Deadlines
10/30 - Deadline to register to vote online or by mail
11/3 - Election Day voting at your polling place 7:00am-8:00pm
11/3 - Deadline to turn in absentee ballot at your polling place
WHERE TO VOTE
If you live on campus, your polling place is Kolf Sports Center, Gyms A/B. Parking and a handicap accessible entrance are available on the Pearl Ave side of the building.
If you live off-campus, you will have to use your address to check your polling place at https://myvote.wi.gov/en-US/FindMyPollingPlace. If you live near campus, you will likely either vote at the Kolf Sports Center or St. John's at 808 N Main Street.
If you live on campus, the poll workers will already have your name in the system. All you'll need to do to register is bring your Titan Card. Next, you'll need a valid photo ID to satisfy the state's Voter ID law. See the list to the right for a list of common eligible documents.
If you live off-campus, you'll need a photo ID in addition to a document that proves that you live at your place residence. Easy examples of this include a lease or utility bill with your name on it.
Examples of Valid Voter IDs:
A UWO-issued voter ID issued free of charge from Titan Central in Reeve Union
A Wisconsin DOT-issued driver license, even if driving privileges are revoked or suspended
A Wisconsin DOT-issued identification card
A Military ID card issued by the U.S. Uniformed Services (including retired and dependent uniformed service IDs)
A U.S. passport book or card
AM I ELIGIBLE TO VOTE?
To vote, you must be at least 18 years old, have lived at your current address for at least 28 days, and be a US citizen. You also cannot have voted elsewhere or have a felony conviction on your record.
If you have requested an absentee ballot, you are able to vote on Election Day as long as you haven't returned it.
