Instant Access to Wisconsin State, County and Municipal Records
Wisconsin Public Records
The Wisconsin State Records website provides every person with the right to gather, obtain, and examine public records. This ensures that Wisconsin residents have access to this information in accordance with the Wisconsin Open Records Law. This act states that all government generated information and records are available to the public.
The main goal of this website is to offer all members of the general public the ability to access Wisconsin state public records easily, efficiently, and concisely, without requiring a reason or any personal information, excluding records made confidential by constitutional, statutory, or court law.
Wisconsin State Records presents all available public records, including arrest records, court records, vital records, state background checks, and over 50 million additional public records.
Wisconsin public records were created from as far back as 1790 and includes information from 72 counties and 1,851 municipalities. Digitization has become the standard over the past 30 years, and this allows governmental and third party websites to offer these records online with increased reliability. This ensures Wisconsin abides by the commitment of the United States of America to remain a fair and just society for all.
