Resources for the primary election on Tuesday, Feb 21

Elections matter, and have consequences...VOTE!

Tomorrow (Tuesday, February 21) will be the first official election under the new districts formed (in secret, as it were) last year. Nevertheless, it's still important to have the information you need in order to vote tomorrow.

Since boundaries have been changed, so too have the places where you will vote (for instance, my personal location has changed by several blocks, from a school to a municipal building on the opposite side of my neighborhood).

Even though it's only a primary election, you should still consider voting. And if you don't know where to vote, that can be a problem.

Fortunately, you can find out very easily where you're supposed to vote, online or through a quick phone call to your Municipal Clerk.

If you live in Madison, you can go to this site, plug in your web address and see where you are supposed to go (it's that easy!). If you live outside of Madison, find your Municipal Clerk's office and call them -- they're happy to give you the proper information on where you're meant to vote.

Need more information on the candidates or on voting in general? Check out United Wisconsin's BE A VOTER website or the League of Women Voters for more information.

Remember: elections matter. We learned that last year, that even state and local elections have consequences. These primary elections, too, will have outcomes that can determine the future of our state.
