The Kenosha City Clerk and Treasurer’s Office has been advised that a voter registration mailing has been sent to City of Kenosha residents.  The mailing is not from the City of Kenosha or the Wisconsin Election Commission.  It is from the Voter Participation Center (VPC) and the Center for Voter Information (CVI), which are nonprofit voter registration groups that are not affiliated with the State.

The mailing contains an older version of the Wisconsin voter registration application with some information for the recipient pre-filled on the form.  Instructions and a cover letter will are included that provide voters with context for the mailing and information to help them understand the voter registration process and proof of residence requirements.   

VPC/CVI has made information about their process available on its website.  The website also contains an electronic form that voters can use to unsubscribe from VPC and CVI’s mailings:  https://www.centerforvoterinformation.org/unsubscribe/

VPC/CVI has informed the Wisconsin Election Commission that they sent this mailing to 2,861 City of Kenosha residents.  Some residents are registered to vote, and some may have moved.  To check the status of your voter registration visit myvote.wi.gov or contact the City Clerk and Treasurer at 262-653-4020 or
