Voter Registration Drives – BEWARE

Voter registration drives will increase in 2020.  These organizations are not affiliated with the Town of Cottage Grove and while most organizations are legitimate, this is also an area of opportunity for scammers.   Be aware that voter registration requires personal information such as your date of birth and driver’s license number.   Never give personal information to anyone you don’t know and trust. 

Also, since Town of Cottage Grove residents can have mailing addresses in Madison, Deerfield and McFarland, and residents with Cottage Grove mailing addresses can reside in either the Town or the Village of Cottage Grove, it can be difficult for third parties to choose the correct voting location based on address.  This can lead to confusion and delay of processing of voter registration applications.

The Town of Cottage Grove does not send out voter registration application forms unless specifically requested.

 The safest means to register to vote includes the following:

  1. *Online at the MyVote Wisconsin:  https://myvote.wi.gov/en-us/
  2. *By mail (complete the voter registration form): https://elections.wi.gov/forms/el-131-fillable
