NEW Early In-Person Voting Rules For Wisconsin

NEW Early In-Person Voting Rules For Wisconsin

Alert1Last month due to a lawsuit filed by one of Wisconsin’s most liberal organizations, One Wisconsin Now, the state’s rules for early in-person voting changed. The lawsuit alleges the law providing for a 10 day early-in person voting window is discriminatory against minorities, especially those in Milwaukee. The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals agreed, ordering that all 1,855 Wisconsin municipal clerks could decide for themselves when early voting would begin as well as the days and hours the office would be open for such voting. Some municipalities will begin yet this month.

Wisconsin Family Action president Julaine Appling has this to say, “This has made it more difficult for Wisconsin voters to take advantage of early in-person voting. Now instead of knowing that opportunity is 10 business days before any election, citizens must find out that information directly from their municipal clerk. The State Elections Commission will not be compiling that information. We urge all Wisconsin voters to be aware of this change.”

IMPORTANT! According to Wisconsin’s Government Accountability Board, each city, village and town in Wisconsin is responsible for setting the dates and hours of in-person absentee voting for their municipality.  To find the dates and hours for in-person absentee voting where you live,  contact your municipal clerk.
