MAKE YOUR PLAN TO VOTE
- Double check your registration status (and polling place if voting on election day) here: https://myvote.wi.gov/. Many polling places have changed in recent years due to the ongoing pandemic, so it's always a good idea to double check your polling location a few days before you plan to vote.
- Decide when and where you will vote, put it on your calendar and make transportation arrangements if you need to. Make a plan to vote with a friend if you can!
