Friday – January 29, 2021

The 2021 Spring Primary is just around the corner (even though we are in the middle of winter). Be ready for the 2021 elections by reviewing and sharing the information below.
Remember every election mattersdepending on the race, the candidate that wins the primary, locks up the victory for that office in the primary election.
Request your absentee ballot to be mailed to you for the 2/16 Spring Primary!
Go to and make a request for your absentee ballot to be sent to you by mail in just seconds. In Wisconsin, any registered voter can vote absentee - no excuses needed. And you can make a request to get all your ballots by mail so you're sure not to miss out on voting in any election in 2021. Request your ballot for the 2/16 election today. The sooner you make your request, the more likely you are to receive and send back your ballot in time for it to be counted.
What's on my ballot this Spring? You will find local and state races on your ballot. These may include the State Superintendent Of Public Instruction, City Council, Village President, Judges, Mayor, and Alders. (Find out what is on your ballot at MyVote). These offices have direct impact on you. The more local the election, the more likely the people elected may live in your neighborhood. Your vote matters in our state and local elections.
Get to know who wants to represent you and which candidate best represents your values before you vote. Find candidate and ballot information from the League of Women Voters of Wisconsin at Vote411.
Wisconsin's youngest voters need to stay engaged and should plan to vote in 2021. Are you a college student voting in Wisconsin? Or do you know a student who wants to vote in Wisconsin? Here is important information from the Common Cause Wisconsin website to share: Three Things College Students Need to Do To Vote in Wisconsin

Voting by absentee ballot, having the correct ID, finding your polling place, knowing the deadlines...None of these things have to be scary, but they can be overwhelming. Help is just a call, text, or email away.

Call or text the WI Voter Helpline at 608-285-2141 and you will be connected to a nonpartisan person who can help answer all your questions. You can also request services such as getting assistance at the DMV to get an ID to vote or having someone witness your absentee ballot.

Voters with disabilities have the right to an accessible polling place. This includes the right to use an accessible voting machine, to assistance marking a ballot, and to voting curbside. Call the Disability Rights Wisconsin Voter Hotline for assistance: 1-844-347-8683. Or email: Additional online resources are also at the Wisconsin Disability Vote Coalition website

If you experience problems at the polls or have questions, there is help. Call Election Protection at 866-OUR-VOTE (866-687-8683) for support from nonpartisan election protection volunteers with questions or to report problems.
Make a plan to vote this year. There is time to prepare and be voter ready. Democracy depends on it. Democracy depends on you.
