Polling places are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Wisconsin has an Open Primary; your voter registration is not tied to a political party, and the party you choose on this ballot is known only to you.  This is the type of election where voters choose a political party, and are limited to voting in that one political party's section of the ballot. 

If you have moved since the last time you voted and established your new residence by August 1, you will need to update your voter registration. You may register to vote or update your registration at your polling place on Election Day. When registering to vote, you need to prove your address pdf with a government document, Wisconsin driver license/ID, utility bill, bank statement, residential lease or paycheck showing your name and address. If your proof of address is an electronic document, you may show the poll workers that document on your smart phone or tablet.

If you have moved since August 1, you have not been at your new address long enough to establish residency at that address for voting in today's election. You would still be eligible to vote at the polling place for your previous address. After Election Day, you can update your voter registration to reflect your new address.

You will need to show an acceptable Voter ID pdf for your ballot to be counted. The address on your ID does not matter for the purpose of proving your identity. If you are using a Wisconsin driver license/ID, passport, or military ID, an expired ID is acceptable as long as it expired after November 6, 2018. Wisconsin's voter' ID law is not affected by the Federal REAL ID Act; a Wisconsin ID that does not comply with the REAL ID Act will be accepted at the polls as long as its expiration date is later than November 6, 2018.

If you are not able to show an acceptable Voter ID pdf to the poll workers today, you may cast a provisional ballot at the polls and then get a copy of your ID to the Clerk's Office by 4 p.m. Friday.
