Early Voting Is Underway For Primary, LWVNOW Has Advice
Early voting has begun for the upcoming Wisconsin spring primary election and a spokesperson says there are a couple of ways you can get your vote in before election day.
In Wisconsin, early voting for any election begins 15 days before the election and ends 4 days before the February 18 election.
League of Women Voters of the Northwoods spokesperson Debra Durchslag says voters have until February 14 at 5:00 p.m. to cast a vote in person with their local municipal clerk.
She says there's also another option...
"People can also request an absentee ballot if they're not going to be here on February 18. You can go to myvote.wi.gov and request an absentee ballot or they can call their municipal clerk and ask for one.."
Debra Durchslag says if you request an early ballot there are some requirements...
"They need to prove who they are with a photo ID. There is a photo ID required whenever you vote. Whether it's the early voting, or when you return your absentee ballot there must be a copy of your photo ID with that..."
Durchslag says if you have not yet registered to vote, go to myvote.wi. org and check your registration.
If you need to register you can do so at the clerk’s office. She says bring proof of residence with you.
