Take Action

Early voting is underway in Wisconsin. You can now cast an in-person absentee ballot for the November 6 elections at your local municipal clerk's office.

Find your Early Voting Times and Locations: Cities, towns and villages set their own dates and hours for in-person absentee voting. Check the dates and hours for early voting in your area by contacting your municipal clerk. Many early voting locations end on close business Friday, November 2. Milwaukee and Madison will continue early voting until Sunday, November 4.

Bring Your ID: You will need to bring a photo ID with you to cast an early ballot. Information about acceptable photo IDs can be found at www.bringit.wi.gov.

Make Sure You’re Registered: You can register to vote at your local municipal clerk's office until the close of business on Friday, Nov. 2. You can also register to vote at your polling place on election day. You must provide proof of residence such as a valid driver's license, utility bill, pay stub, or residential lease agreement. More proof of residence documents can be found here.

Early voting is quick and easy. Request a ballot in person at your local early vote location, fill out your ballot and hand the ballot to staff who will sign and seal your ballot. After you cast your ballot for working family candidates, help us encourage others to get to the polls by volunteering with our Labor 2018 program. Stop into one of our union locations to make calls, knock doors and get out the vote!
