All You Need to Know to Head to the PollsSubmitted: 11/05/2012
Story By Lyndsey Stemm


RHINELANDER - Voting tomorrow could be confusing if you aren't prepared. That's why we're putting it all in one place for you.

Changes to voting rules, and other changes that are stalled in court, have left people wondering just what the rules are right now.

First of all, if you're already registered to vote with your current address, you don't need to take anything with you to the polls tomorrow.

But if you have not registered, here's what you need to know:

If you've lived at your current address for at least 28 days you can vote there. If not, you have to go vote at your old polling place.

If you have lived in the state less than 28 days, you can obtain a presidential only ballot.

All polling places in the state of Wisconsin offer on-site voter registration.

To register on site you'll need to provide your driver's license number. You don't need to have your license with you, but you'll need the number.

If the address on your license is current, then it works as your proof of residency. If it's not current, you'll also need to bring proof of residency.

Please see the link below for an extensive list of appropriate proof of residency documents.

As of June this year you are no longer able to bring a "corroborating witness" to prove your residency.

If you don't have a driver's license or state ID you'll need to provide the last four digits of your social security number, and proof of residency.

New this election, you can actually show the poll workers your proof of residency on a digital device, like a smartphone or tablet.
