Ready to vote? Here's what you need to know!

Election Day is less than one week away and your vote on November 6 will make a difference for working families.

Please look up the candidates in your area who will work for working families. Our labor endorsed candidates can be found here.

You do not need a photo ID to vote. If you are voting for the first time, you will have to bring something to your polling place that proves you are a Wisconsin resident. Here's a list of acceptable proof of residency documents, including a current utility bill, paycheck stub or bank statement.
You can register to vote in-person at your polling place on Election Day. To find your polling location and check your voter registration click here.

If you will not be available on November 6, there's still time to vote in-person absentee - but there's not much time left. Close of business on Friday, November 2, is the last day to vote in-person absentee at your local municipal clerk’s office.

As a union member, you know that having your voice heard makes a difference - don't forget to vote November 6. Report any problems at the polls to the Election Protection hotline at 1-866-OUR VOTE and visit the Government Accountability Board website for more information.

In Solidarity,

Phil Neuenfeldt, President
Stephanie Bloomingdale, Secretary-Treasurer
