Photo ID is not required to vote in Tuesday’s recall elections.

Recall elections for Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and four members of the State Senate will be held on Tuesday, June 5. Voting is one of the most important and effective ways that a disability advocate like yourself can make a difference.

Polls will be open from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. on Tuesday. You do not need a photo ID to vote; however, you must be registered to vote. You can register to vote at the polling site on Election Day. In order to register, you must provide your name, address, and proof of residency. Visit the Government Accountability Board’s (GAB) website for acceptable Proof-of-Residence documents. Not sure if you’re registered? Find out on GAB’s Voter Search.

Also, GAB has released its Top 10 Things a Wisconsin Voter Should Know for Election Day. This article contains important information about photo ID, your rights as a voter, and what to do if you run into problems at the polls.

Citizens who plan on voting via absentee ballot must have their ballot postmarked by Tuesday, June 5 in order for it to be counted.

Flex your disability advocacy muscles and exercise your right to vote on Tuesday!
