That’s A Good Question!


QUESTION:

I am a guardian for someone who wants to vote. Are they able to?


ANSWER:

How wonderful that he/she wants to vote! In Wisconsin, people under guardianship retain their right to vote unless the court expressly removes that right. So, if this right has not been removed, then yes, your ward can vote. The guardianship paperwork you received should have this information. Wisconsin Disability Vote Coalition is a great resource for persons with disabilities to learn more about their voting rights. Check out their website at https://disabilityvote.org/2022/guardianship-and-voting-resources/


If the right to vote has been removed, it is sometimes possible to regain those rights. Wisconsin Disability Vote Coalition is also great resource to learn more about how to do this. The fact that he/she wants to vote is a great indicator that they could be a great candidate for this right to be restored.
