Wisconsin voters who registered after January 30th may be in for a surprise when they show up at the polls.
State officials say several hundred voter registrations showed up after the deadline for being included in today's primary election. As a result, many of those people may have to re-register when they show up at the polls.
Government Accountability Board spokesman Kyle Richmond says those voters will still be able to cast a ballot in today's election. However, they will have to provide a driver's license number or Social Security Number and proof they are a Wisconsin resident.
Richmond says most of the late registrations came from groups that ignored the state deadline. Those groups are encouraging people to vote and providing materials to do so by mail, but aren't informing them about the deadline. Voters registering by mail must have it post marked within 20 days of an election, so state and local clerks have time to enter the information.
As for today's primary, Richmond says most counties appear to be ready. He says many ordered extra ballots and have brought on extra poll workers in anticipation of a high turnout.
