Wisconsin residents get the chance to choose the preferred presidential candidate in their party in the April 7 primary election.
Just as important, voters also get to elect candidates to village, town and county boards who understand agriculture and are fair-minded. These boards can have significant power over how agriculture and farms are treated locally.
So, we strongly urge you to learn something about the candidates and then cast your ballot.
Voting is easy
When: Tuesday, April 7. Voting places are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. You can also vote ahead of time by going to your polling place.
You can register, see the candidates on your specific ballot and find your polling place.
Voter ID: You will need identification (e.g. driver’s license).
Registering: You must be re-gistered to vote. If you’re not, you can do so online or when you show up to vote. If you register in person, proof of residence is needed. A driver’s license works if the address is current. Otherwise, take a real estate bill or utility bill.
