A Busy Election Year

It’s a busy election year. 

Hartford City Clerk Shanna Kreilkamp told WTKM News how to register to vote.

"You can register to vote any time of the year at the municipal clerk's office. You need to bring along your proof of residence and fill out a voter registration application. You can also register by mail. You have to complete and sign a voter registration application and then submit it to us with a proof of residence. Please keep in mind, that we need to receive it at least 20 days before the election. You can also register on election day at your polling place location."                                                  

Four elections are scheduled. The first one is scheduled for February 20. It’s a spring primary. The second election this year is the spring election and it’s the presidential preference primary, which is set for April 2. 

The partisan primary is August 13. The general and presidential election is November 5.

Residents can register at their polling location on election day. You will need to fill out a voter registration application and provide a proof of residence. The rule is that you would have had to have lived at your current address for at least 28 days prior to the election. Otherwise, you would have to vote at your former polling location.

Absentee is also an option. If you want the ballot mailed to you, you can fill out a form. It’s available at the clerk’s office or at myvote.wi.gov.
