Some things to keep in mind as you head to the polls

Make sure you are ready for voter registration and have your ID

Polling places open at seven Tuesday morning, and close at eight that night.

However, any voter in line by 8 p.m. will get to vote.

Officials expect it to be a long day for poll workers.

“I don’t expect the first vote results to start coming in until probably 9 p.m. by the time they’re done processing absentees and I expect the last ones will probably be two or three o’clock in the morning before we get to wrap up all the reporting units,” said La Crosse County Clerk Ginny Dankmeyer.

Here are a few things to keep in mind as you head to the polls.

If you need to re-register because of a name change or a change of address, you will need to bring a proof of your current residency to the polls.

With the Wisconsin Voter ID law you will also need a valid form of identification that has your photo on it. Valid IDs include a Wisconsin issued driver’s license, a Wisconsin issued voter ID card, a passport, or a military ID card.

The address on your ID does not have to match your current address.
