"Make A Difference": 2010 Election | The Simplest Milwaukee 2010 General Election Voting Guide

Listen: New to Wisconsin? Recently moved? First time voter? Just need a refresher? Great -- I have just the election guide for you.

Less than a week from now, the 2010 General Election polls will be closed -- there's still a surplus of time to read up, research, and plan your trip to the polls. And because I know this probably isn't the first place you'd come for election information (although Tarik is putting together a nifty resource that you should check back for soon), I'll keep this as streamlined and complete as possible. Yeah? Vote!

- Enter your address here to find out. ( UPDATE: If you'd also like to see a sample ballot for your polling place, you can use this link.)


-Could be. Take a moment and check.


-Early registration by mail and in the Milwaukee Public Libraries closed 20 days before the election. No worries -- you can still register early in City Hall ( 200 E. Wells St.) at the Election Commission (Room 501, M-F 8:00am-4:45pm). Be sure to bring an 'acceptable proof of residence' ( s croll to the bottom for what that means).

-If you're planning on voting anyways, you can also register on the day of the election at the polls. Again, just make sure you bring an 'acceptable proof of residence' along ( scroll to the bottom for what that means).


-If you're registered, you can vote early at the Municipal Building ( 841 N. Broadway St, just east of City Hall) in Room 102 (M-F 8:30am-4:30pm and Sat. 8:30am-2:30pm). I've done it before -- it took me about 3 minutes from start to finish.

- ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 2ND, THE POLLS WILL BE OPEN FROM 7:00AM-8:00PM. Be the first person in line.

Real talk -- voting itself doesn't take much gumption. Your polling place is near where you live and even if you're not registered, there's a negligible amount of paperwork. Make your plans to vote and make sure everybody you know has their plans down too!
