Contested Republican and Democratic presidential primaries, a closely watched race for state Supreme Court, more than 3,000 local elections, and 72 school funding referendums across Wisconsin are all factors in driving voter turnout, which is expected to be about forty percent next Tuesday, according to Kevin Kennedy with the state Government Accountability Board.
The GAB wants to make sure that that everyone who wants to vote is able to do so. Kennedy says the website My Vote Wisconsin. “This allows people to see whether or not they are registered to vote, and where to find your polling place,” Kennedy said.
The April 5th elections will also be the second in which all voters are required to bring a state approved photo ID to the polls. There’s more on that, including informational videos, at Bring It To The Ballot.
