Early Voting Starts Today, May 21
The recall of Scott Walker on June 5th will be one of the most important elections in the history of Wisconsin. It’s also the first step in taking down extreme, right-wing Republicans all over the nation. All eyes are on Wisconsin as we prepare to win this fight for working families everywhere.
The way we’ll win this election, and put Tom Barrett in the governor’s office to begin repairing the damage Scott Walker has done, is by turning out every eligible voter.
Today, the polls opened for Early Voting. You can cast an in-person absentee ballot in your local municipal clerk’s office up until 5 pm on the Friday before the election, which in this case will be Friday, June 1st.
Two things to keep in mind –
1. You DO NOT NEED A PHOTO ID to vote in the June 5th recall election.
2. Where you were living on May 8th determines where you need to vote.
- Wisconsin law requires you to register and vote at the residence you’ve lived at 28 days before Election Day, June 5th.
If you’re not registered, or registered at an old address—you’ll need to register to vote in order to request an absentee ballot.
