2013 Wisconsin voter guide
MILWAUKEE - With Tuesday being an election day, we've put together information and links to help you in your efforts to vote on Election Day when it comes to the following:
You can bring a state ID, valid university or college ID, a utility bill, bank statement, paycheck or other document.
You can also use that link to look up your voter registration and who will be on the ballot when you vote.
If you are not registered to vote, however, you can also look up your polling place.
Wisconsin law allows people to register to vote at the polls. To do you, you need to go to your voting site and bring proof that you have lived at your current address for at least 28 days.
These days will have elections in Wisconsin:
- February 19 (primary election)
- April 2 (general election)
Voters must be eligible to vote before they can file an absentee ballot.
After filling in specific instructions for absentee ballots, people can turn in completed ballots to their municipal clerk before or on Election Day.
In some circumstances, potential voters who don't have the proper documentation to vote will be given permission to cast a provisional ballot.
Under those circumstances, the voter will cast a ballot, but that ballot won't count unless they provide required documentation to a poll worker on election day, or to a municipal clerk by 4:00 p.m. Friday after the election.
