Important Offices Up for Election

Elections will be held throughout the state of Wisconsin on Tuesday, April 2. Voting is one of the most important and effective ways that a disability advocate like you can make a difference.

Wisconsin voters will choose a State Superintendent of Public Instruction and a State Supreme Court Justice. Also, many parts of the state will have local elections for positions like mayor, as well as city council and school board members. All of the people elected to these positions will have the opportunity to make decisions that affect people with disabilities and their families. To view your personal ballot in advance of the election, visit My Vote Wisconsin.

The candidates for State Superintendent of Public Instruction are current Superintendent Tony Evers and challenger Rep. Don Pridemore. To learn more about these candidates, check out the summary report of a forum on special education. Both candidates participated in the forum.

Current State Supreme Court Justice Pat Roggensack is facing challenger Ed Fallone.  Visit their websites for more information about their positions.

Photo identification is not needed to vote in this election. Voters will be asked to sign the poll book. Anyone who is not physically able to sign the poll book can be exempt from the requirement. If you are physically able, you can sign your name or use a mark or a stamp signature. A mark can be an “X.”

If you have any questions about registering to vote, accessible voting machines, the voting process, or your rights as a voter, contact the Disability Rights Wisconsin Voter Hotline at 800/928-8778 or 888/758-6049 (TTY/TEXTNET).
