Things to know before heading to polls in Wisconsin

LA CROSSE, Wis. - As voters head to the polls Tuesday in Wisconsin, there are a few things to remember.

You can register at the polls, however, you will need to provide a proof of residence like a utility bill, and your drivers license number or state ID card number. If you don't have one, you can provide the last four digits of your social security number.

Keep in mind, you do not need a photo ID to vote at the polls.

Also, by law your employer must provide you up to three hours off of work to vote, which could help if there is high voter turnout. "Some polling places might have lines so when you do go to the polls tomorrow be prepared, you might have to spend some time in line waiting to vote, don't expect you can get in and out quickly, some of the polling places may not have lines but some of them will, so be prepared for that," said La Crosse Co. Clerk Ginny Dankmeyer.


Polls are open from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. As long as you are in line at 8:00 p.m., you will be allowed to vote.
