Voter Registration/Absentee Ballots Mailings.
2020 is a Presidential Election year, which means you will soon be finding voter registration forms and absentee ballot request forms in your mailbox.  These mailings are not from your municipal clerk, even though they may appear to be.  They are sent by special interest groups and the pre-filled voter information on the forms is often inaccurate.  To ensure you are properly registered or to apply for an absentee ballot, please visit or contact the La Crosse City Clerk’s Office at 608-789-7510. 

Voter Photo ID Required!!
A photo ID is required to receive a ballot in all elections.  Learn more about photo ID and voting by visiting the Bring It to the Ballot website and/or downloading our Voter ID Brochure.

Provisional Ballots
The number of Provisional Ballots for the City of La Crosse will be posted on election night (after 8:00 pm, the close of polls) on the County of La Crosse Elections webpage.
