While social distancing may be disruptive, it does not have to impact your ability to make sure your voice is heard on April 7th. Follow these quarantine-friendly steps to register and vote from the comfort of your couch!
The deadline to register to vote for the April 7th Spring Election by mail or online is Wednesday, March 30th at 11:59 p.m. If you aren’t sure if you are registered to vote at your current address, or haven’t registered to vote yet, do so online at myvote.wi.gov.
In under five minutes, you can register yourself to vote and text five friends to remind them to do the same before the March 30th deadline.
After you have registered, you can make a plan to vote! In these uncertain times, make sure you can vote by requesting an absentee ballot. Voting absentee is easy and convenient – you can even have your ballot sent to a different address than the one that you are registered to vote at (looking at you, college kids)!
Take another few minutes to request an absentee ballot online before April 2nd at 5 p.m.
Looking for some light reading while you are social distancing? Read up on who is on your ballot – it will include the Presidential Primary, Wisconsin State Supreme Court, and may include other judges, county board and school board members.
Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin has endorsed Judge Jill Karofsky for Wisconsin State Supreme Court. View other PPAWI endorsements here.
Wash your hands and take the time to plan ahead to make sure your vote is heard on Election Day!
