For our movement to be successful, survivors and advocates need to stay engaged in the political process. Remember to vote today, Tuesday, June 5, 2012.
If you are an adult citizen and a Wisconsin resident, you are eligible to register and vote. No photo ID is necessary.
Polls opened at 7 a.m. today and are open until 8 p.m. You can find your polling place here: https://vpa.wi.gov
Residency: Citizens can still register at the polls; however, they must be residents of a municipality for 28 consecutive days to register as a voter from that address. Those who are not registered must provide acceptable proof of residence to register, such as a utility or other bill. If you have moved within 28 days of Election Day you can still vote at your former place of residence. If you have questions about becoming a confidential voter or voting from a shelter address, call Tony Gibart at WCADV (608.255.0539 x. 310)
Photo ID and Signatures: You do not need a photo ID for this election. You will be asked to sign the poll book. You can use a stamp or mark if necessary. If you are unable to sign due to a physical disability, you can request an exemption.
