The next election for some municipalities may not take place until next April, but voting advocacy groups like the League of Women Voters say now is the perfect time to make sure you are registered. Tuesday marks National Voter Registration Day, an event encouraging people to make sure they are able to cast their ballot on Election Day by making sure all of the information is correct and up to date. Wisconsin does not have some of the same barriers other states do because polling places are allowed to register voters on Election Day as long as they have the proper documentation with them. Barb Graul from the League of Women Voters of Door County suggests you double-check to make sure you are ready for Election Day to avoid any possible hassles that could pop up.
To recognize National Voter Registration Day, the League of Women Voters of Door County will be at the ADRC on 14th Avenue from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. to assist voters in registering for the first time or to update their current information. Outside of a potential primary for local races on February 20th, the next major election will not be until April 2nd. The spring election will also feature a Presidential preference primary for those still running for a shot at the White House.
