Voter Information

Tuesday, November 8th is Election Day.  Polls will be open from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm.

MyVote Wisconsin (https://myvote.wi.gov/en-us/) is the state’s official source for voting information, with resources to help you cast your ballot on Election Day:   You can use the site to review your voting information, check your polling place, register to vote, request an absentee mail ballot, and more. 

Don’t forget your Photo ID!

Wisconsin state law requires that you present a valid photo identification prior to receiving a ballot.  A Wisconsin Driver’s license, U.S. passport or U.S. military identification card are all suitable forms of photo ID.  For more information on photo ID, including how to obtain a free ID and a list of other allowable ID forms, visit:  http://www.bringitwisconsin.com/

Want to Avoid the Lines?

Rather than vote on Election Day, you can choose to vote early at your local clerk’s office (often located in your city, town or village town hall).  Beginning in late September or early October, local clerks will begin accepting walk-in voters.  For more information, contact your local municipal clerk and ask about in-person absentee voting. A directory of municipal clerks can be found here:  http://www.gab.wi.gov/clerks/directory
