Election Day is Tuesday, November 8, 2016.  The polls will be open from 7am to 8pm. If you are eligible to vote (U.S. citizen and age 18 or over), you are strongly encouraged to exercise your right to vote and have your voice heard.


Vote in the City of Appleton

The polling location for students living on campus (District 4) is at the Memorial Presbyterian Church (corner of Meade Street and College Avenue).  Students residing off campus can find their polling location on the city clerk's website. While Lawrence provides proof of residency and proof of enrollment for students living on campus, students living off campus will have to provide proof of residency and will have to print a current class schedule as proof of enrollment.  For students who live on campus - voter registration officials at Memorial Presbyterian Church will be provided with proof of students' street addresses, as provided by the university (the mailing address of the Warch Campus Center is not the same as a campus residence street address) and proof of enrollment (same list).

 

To find out where you are registered to vote, go to www.myvote.wi.gov – enter your name and birthdate.

Voter IDs

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).
