- November 2, 2018
The most important election of our lifetime is Tuesday, November 6th!
Election day is our last chance to pull the emergency brake on the Trump-Pence agenda in the general election. Across Wisconsin and the United States, a record number of voters are turning out to vote for pro-equality candidates.
Here’s a checklist before heading out to the polls:
Locate your polling location
Make a plan! Polls will open at 7:00 AM and close at 8:00 PM. As long as you are in line to vote by the time polls close, you will be permitted to vote! Find your polling place.
Bring an ID
You are required to show ID before voting in Wisconsin. Find out which forms of ID will be accepted before you head to the polls! For more information on how this might impact trans voters, please refer to the #VotingWhileTrans guide.
Spread the word!
Call or text 5 friends and remind them that every vote counts, and, after you vote, change your Facebook profile picture to encourage others to get to the polls!
