Here's how to vote in Wisconsin's April 6 election

Wisconsin is getting ready to head to the polls again. On Tuesday, April 6, the state will vote for its next State Superintendent of Public Instruction, with candidates Jill Underly and Deborah Kerr vying for the position that was once held by Gov. Tony Evers.

That's the only statewide race on the ballot, but depending on where you live there could be quite a few other races, too. Competitive races in Milwaukee include Milwaukee County Circuit Court Judge (Branch 3), Milwaukee Board of School Directors (Districts 4 and 5), and County Supervisor (District 10), in addition to many non-contested races.

Voters can see what's on their ballots here.

Although election day is April 6, there's still time to vote early. In-person absentee voting runs through April 4. You can see where and when you can vote in-person here.

Polls will be open on Tuesday, April 6, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Wisconsin has same-day voter registration. If you are already registered, you will need an acceptable photo ID to vote, but that ID does not need to show your current address or have a star on it.

In-person voters are asked to wear a mask or face-covering while they vote, but they are not required. Voters cannot be denied a ballot for refusing to wear a face covering, according to the Wisconsin Elections Commission.
