Click to enlarge

I'm going to keep this short, simple, and straight to the point.

What's going on? A primary for the 2011 Spring Election. This is a chance to have your voice heard in some significant races impacting our part of the world (earlier today, Jordan posted on the County Executive race).

What's on the ballot in Milwaukee county? Primaries for Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice, Circuit Court Judge Branch 18, potentially some County Board positions, and the much discussed County Executive. For a complete breakdown, check out the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's preview. Also, you can see a sample ballot here -- thanks to the Milwaukee Courier for posting this.

When are the polls open? As always, they're open 7:00am-8:00pm.

Know where you're voting? If you know your address, you can find that out here and there's a slightly simpler version here.

Not registered? No problem -- you can do it at the polls tomorrow. Read instructions on how to do that here.

Any other questions? The Wisconsin Government Accountability Board has a thoroughly written FAQ that might have an answer for you.

What's next? The Spring Election will be on April 5th, 2011. If you'd like to vote by mail, the last day to register is March 16 and the last day to request an absentee ballot by mail is March 31st. 

Sound good? See you at the polls tomorrow!
