Today is Election Day

UW-Madison Students,

 

Tuesday is Election Day. I urge you to become an active participant in the democratic process by voting for the candidates of your choice in federal, state and local races.

 

Polls are open from 7 a.m.-8 p.m. The location of your polling place is determined by your address.

 

–If you are a Madison resident, visit http://www.cityofmadison.com/election/voter/Where.cfm and type in your address to find your polling place.

 

–If you’re not registered to vote at your current residence, you may register at the polls on Election Day. Details: http://www.cityofmadison.com/election/voter/voterRegister.cfm

 

Plan ahead. Keep in mind that turnout may be high and there could be long lines, particularly if you plan to register at the polls.

 

If you are registering at the polls, you will be required to show proof of residency.  To do so, you may use a paper, electronic or smartphone copy of the Voter Enrollment Verification Form in Student Center to prove your address. Details: https://kb.wisc.edu/helpdesk/page.php?id=22225

 

Remember, you do not currently need to show a photo ID at the polls to vote. Also, voting has no impact on your insurance, financial aid or student status.

 

For additional information on voting, visit http://www.uc.wisc.edu/vote/ or  https://myvote.wi.gov/.
