Don’t be intimidated into not voting
There’s no harm in admitting you might be confused to the point of intimidation about voting in Tuesday’s primary elections.
After all, redistricting has shifted some voters from one Assembly or Senate district to another. Some voters have to go to new polling places.
Some residents remain confused about whether they need a photo ID to vote (you don’t) or whether you can still register at the polls Tuesday (you can with proper documents).
And just who’s on the ballot? Both political parties feature lots of lively races.
You can go to the state’s Voter Public Access website, vpa.wi.gov vpa.wi.gov, to learn whether you’re registered, where you vote and see a ballot for your location.
