2013 Wisconsin Act 182, which was passed as Senate Bill 267, is effective as of April 4, 2014. Act 182 requires that voters provide a document establishing their proof of residence (POR) as part of the voter registration application. The requirement applies to all electors who are not military or permanent overseas electors. Prior to Act 182’s enactment, proof of residence was not required for electors that registered during the open registration period in the clerk’s office or through a special registration deputy (SRD).
