It’s voting season and, well, has there ever been a more important election? You don’t want to wait until November 3rd to figure out if you’re registered and ready to go. In fact, in these COVID-times, why not get yourself set up to vote by mail…also known as Absentee. It’s easy. It’s safe. You don’t have to wait in line.
First: visit https://myvote.wi.gov/en-us/ Check your Voter Info by putting in your name and date of birth. The site will tell you instantly whether or not you are currently registered and provide the current address information on file for you. It will also advise you of your polling place and upcoming elections, and, if you have requested an Absentee ballot, will tell you when it was approved, mailed and returned. If you need to register, the site will walk you through that process. Another tab on the website allows you to request an Absentee Ballot for one or all elections upcoming in a year.
Yes, of course you can still visit your Town Clerk at your Town Office to register to vote. Nothing wrong with Old School! Just…don’t wait. Be ready!
If you opt to vote Absentee, be sure that your ballot is signed by you and a witness and returned to your Town or City Clerk at least a week in advance of the election date to be sure it arrives on time. Your vote counts and you want to make sure it gets there in time to count.
The above-referenced website is for anyone, anywhere in Wisconsin. Other states offer the same.
GET READY TO GET OUT AND VOTE!!!
