A local spokesperson says with the current move to remove hundreds of thousands of voters from the rolls, you should check your registration.

An effort to stop the state from removing the voter registrations of 234,000 Wisconsin voters who may have moved heads to federal court as the state seeks to stall the purge in court.

Attorney General Josh Kaul filed notice that his office would appeal and is seeking to stay an Ozaukee County judge's order that would remove those voters from the rolls.

League of Women Voters of the Northwoods spokesperson Debra Durchslag says computer-savvy voters can check their status easily on a website...

"...All voters should go to myvote.wi.gov or go to myvote, click Wisconsin, and it will come up. Then you put in your address, name and birthdate, and you'll check your voter registration status..."

If the information comes up that you're not registered, there will be a system to help you work on that. Durchslag says it's the same website where you can check your local ballot and have other questions answered at voting time. If you don't have access to a computer, you can check with your municipal clerk or go to a library which has internet access.

Durchslag says the voter purge likely affects certain groups...

"..It's often poor people and people who move around, the elderly, that will be most affected by this...."

Durchslag says if you aren't registered, you can registered the day you vote with proper ID and proof of residence.
