The Spring Election is April 6th
Make sure you are prepared to vote. See if your voter registration is current, check the status of your absentee ballot, or find your polling place all at MyVote.wi.gov.
Join us March 30th at noon on Zoom for a Spring 2021 Election Lunch and Learn.
We’ll help you get prepared to vote, or to support other voters. This is an important election - voters will select the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Court of Appeals Judge, and Circuit Court Judges as well as important local offices such as city officials, school board, alderpersons and more. Registration is required. Register here.
Ride to the Polls.
For the April 2021 election, the DVC is again offering the “Find a Ride to the Polls” resource on our website, listing transportation options around the state. Plan ahead – some require advance notice. If you have a transportation resource to add, email us at info@disabilityvote.org. Thanks to the ADRCs, counties, providers, and volunteers who are providing transportation!
