With the fall mid-term elections under two months away, local groups are making sure there are no surprises at the polls for Door and Kewaunee County voters. According to the Wisconsin Elections Commission, the state mailed 384,000 postcards to eligible but unregistered voters earlier this year. Even once registered, Wisconsin voters need to make sure their photo identification cards are allowed under current state law. Jay Heck from Common Cause Wisconsin says organizations like his and the League of Women Voters have been working hard to make sure voters have what they need, especially on college campuses.
National Voter Registration Day is Tuesday and League of Women Voters Door County will offer voter registration assistance in Sturgeon Bay on September 25th and 26th and again on October 2nd. The organization will also have voter assistance events in Forestville on September 28 and in Sister Bay on October 5th.
