Primary Day In Wisconsin

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012 at 9:47 am

Today is a big day in Wisconsin as voters head to the polls to pick the opposition for this summer’s first-ever state wide recall elections.

It should be noted that voters will not need a photo ID at the polling place since the Voter ID Law is still suspended. But if you’re not registered yet, you’ll need to show proof of residency. Acceptable proof of residency could be a drivers license, utility bill, or a bank statement. Something official with your name and current address on it.

Voters should also go to their current districts for this election even though redistricting took place earlier this year this election will be within the old district lines.

Today’s primary is unique because voters can have a split ticket. You can only vote once for Governor and once Lt. Governor, but the two votes don’t have to be for the same party.

These primary elections will be from 7am until 8pm today, with the general recall elections to take place in June.
