State officials talk registration and voting tips ahead of tomorrow's primary

by

MADISON, Wis. (WSAU) -- Tomorrow is the fall primary election, and the state Government Accountability Board wants you to be ready.

This is a primary election, where individual parties get to decide who will be in the general election. Government Accountability Board spokesman Reid Magney says you need to vote for only one party on this ballot. "Basically you get three chances at it. And if your ballot comes back out because you've marked wrong on it, the poll worker will tear up your ballot and you'll be given a new one."

You won't need a photo ID at the ballot box for this election, but if you are coming in to register the day of the election, be sure to bring proof of residence like a bank statement or a utility bill with your name and address on it.

If you're not sure where to go or if you're registered, Magney says the state's online voting resource, http://myvote.wi.gov is able to help you find out more. "You can put in your name and date of birth, and it will show you your voting record, which elections you've voted in, and you can also see what's in the ballot on Tuesday."

Magney reminds voters to leave their political signs, buttons and shirts at home before they come to vote, because wearing those inside a polling place is electioneering. You're also not supposed to take pictures of your ballot, so resist the urge to tweet your vote.

Officials are expecting about a 15 percent turnout for tomorrow's election.
