More than 50 cities or towns in 33 Wisconsin Counties are still in critical need of poll workers.

Between those places, about 180 people are needed.

There is a list of places by county that still have a need of poll workers on the My Vote Wisconsin website.

Wisconsin’s Chief Election Official Megan Wolfe said that list and those numbers will fluctuate between now election day.

“We really do ask folks to take a list on My Vote.  Contact those clerks if you’re able to serve. As we’ve been talking about through this election season, it’s not enough for clerks just to have poll workers, they also need a backup pool of people they can call upon,” said Wolfe.

Locally, two towns in Marathon and Price Counties are currently on the list.

The deadline for registering to vote online or by mail has passed in Wisconsin.

Since October first, there have been more than 77,000 additional voter registrations.

Right now, more than 3.5 million Wisconsinites are registered to vote. 

You can register to vote on Election Day.

Wolfe said forms are available on the My Vote Wisconsin website.

“They’re going to need to print it off and bring it to their clerk’s office or bring it to their polling place to complete that registration. Or you can just go right to clerk’s office or to the polls on election day and get registered to vote too,” said Wolfe.

In-person absentee voting starts October 20th.

Hours are set by each local jurisdiction.
