  • Portage County elections warning to absentee voters on ballot return

Election Day voting hours are 7:00 a.m.to 7:00 p.m.at all polling places statewide.

"I tell citizens all the time, 'You are going to have the early-morning rush before work, the lunchtime rush and a 4-to-5 o'clock rush", Jefferson said. Give it a read through if you're unsure what you need to do OR send it on to that one person who you know hasn't made their plans to vote.

If your county participates in the Countywide Polling Place Program (CWPP), you can vote at any location in your county of registration.

"This will expedite the process", Jefferson said.

The Wisconsin Elections Commission posts daily updates on absentee voting on its website. One man in a hurry filled out his provisional ballot on a piano instead of waiting in line for a booth.

5 that more than 547,000 absentee ballots have already been returned for the November 6 General Election. Wind gusts could reach 40 to 50 miles per hour as the line of storms moves through this afternoon, Okulski said.

"By-mail voting has made it easier for voters, and we see numbers continue to increase because of it", Lee said. He said voters also thought that early voting was less secure than voting, although he wasn't sure why.


At the close of voting Sunday evening, about 70,454 residents had voted early in person, and another 32,200 had sent in vote-by-mail ballots, Wycoff said. All Sumter School District schools are closed today. And even though many feel worn out from all the ads and hype, voters FOX4 talked to all stressed the importance of taking part in this election.

Monmouth County Clerk Christine Hanlon said stickers were included in the material she sent to cities and towns, but it's up to the Board of Elections to distribute stickers to poll workers to hand out.

Can I register anywhere else?: Yes, the county has three Election Day registration centers at the DeKalb County Administration Building, 110 E. Sycamore St., Sycamore; Holmes Student Center on the NIU campus in DeKalb; and the DeKalb Township Building, 2323 S. Fourth St., DeKalb.

What To Bring: You won't need any ID if you've voted in California in previous elections.

The midterm elections are here!

The South Carolina Election Commission said more than 230,000 votes were cast as of Friday evening. For perspective, the early vote total in the 2014 midterms was 28.3 million, and over 83 million people voted in the election overall.
