Qualified Electors may register to vote in the Town Clerk's office during regular office hours. Registrations will also be taken on election day. Persons wishing to register to vote must provide proof of residence. A valid Wisconsin Driver's license with a current Town of Whitewater address is the easiest form to use for this requirement. If this is not available, contact the Town Clerk for other options.
