Spring Election Is April 2
The Spring 2019 Election will be held Tuesday, April 2. Polls will be open from 7am-8pm.
On the ballot are candidates for State Supreme Court Justice, District III Court of Appeals Judge, Outagamie County Executive, and Appleton School Board members (two seats). Here's a sample ballot (PDF)
Where to vote. The Lawrence campus will vote at the nearby Memorial Presbyterian Church, 803 E. College Ave., at the corner of College and Meade streets. Students who do not reside on campus can find their polling location here. Polls will be open from 7am-8pm.
Registering to vote. You can register to vote at the polling location on the day of the election. Lawrence will provide proof of residency and proof of enrollment to the City Clerk's office for students living on campus; students living off campus will have to provide proof of residency. Off campus students planning to use an LU voter ID will have to print a current class schedule as proof of enrollment.
Voter ID. Wisconsin law currently requires you to have a voter ID on election day in order to cast a ballot. A Wisconsin driver's license, U.S. passport, or military ID is acceptable. Your Lawrence student ID is not. If you do not have a Wisconsin driver's license or a passport, you can obtain a Lawrence voter ID card from the ID Office (Warch Campus Center main level) at no charge. Remember: If you get an LU voter ID, please hang on to it! It will be valid for two years (the expiration date will be printed on the card).
Know your street address. Along with bringing your voter ID to the polls, you will need to know the street address of your residence. Residential addresses can be found here.
