October 10, 2008
Registering to vote in advance of election day is easy, quick, and helps reduce lines at the polls for everyone. In Wisconsin any US citizen who will have lived in the state for 10 days before the election can vote here. This means that all students who rent apartments, houses, or live in the Residence halls can vote here.
Early voter registration closes on the 15th of October. To register in the early registration period simply fill out the form at the voter registration table located in the UC that is sponsored by the UWRF student senate.
Voters who currently live anywhere in Wisconsin or Minnesota can register at the table October 13th and 14th. Voters who live in the city of River Falls can also register until 4pm on the 15th in addition to the times on the 13th and 14th.
If you do not register in the early registration period you must register at your Municipal clerks office or at the polls on the day of the elections. Election day is Tuesday November 4th the polls are open from 7am to 8pm.
