Poll Worker Training

Thank you for being a poll worker! 


To those of you who have given your time, dedication and patience to be a poll worker, you have our Sincerest Gratitude! We could not do this without you!

We greatly urge voters to ABSENTEE VOTE and can request an absentee ballot be mailed to them at MyVote.wi.gov

UPDATE (7/29/20): Wisconsin now requires a 28 day residency for voters.  This means voters must have resided at their current address for at least 28 consecutive days prior to the election.  For the August 11th Election, voters must have been at their new address by July 15th in order to vote at their new address.
