“One in four Wisconsin adults will soon be getting an official postcard in the mail urging them to register to vote before the election,” said Mark L. Thomsen, chair of the bipartisan Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC).

The postcards are being sent to 1.28 million unregistered residents. ...

“Whether or not voters have all of the required documentation to prove identity and residence, they can get a free receipt after one visit to the DMV that will serve as acceptable photo ID” Thomsen said.  The IDPP receipt is good for 60 days and will renew automatically.

The week before the election and the week of the election, the DMV will send receipts by overnight delivery, Thomsen noted. “However, we encourage voters to prepare now.”

Kansas judge extends order to ensure thousands can vote in state and local elections in November

Excerpt: 

Judge Larry Hendricks previously issued a preliminary order that people who registered to vote at the DMV could vote in the August primary regardless of whether they had provided proof of citizenship. He has now extended that order through the Nov. 8 general election.

He has also amended his order to require that Secretary of State Kris Kobach, the defendant in the case, ensure that these 18,000 voters are given timely notice by local election offices that they qualify to vote in federal, state and local races in the general election. Kobach will face a contempt hearing this week in a separate federal case over allegations that he has failed to ensure these voters are registered and informed of their status.

Voting as a Student

As a student, you have a constitutional right to register and vote in the place you truly consider to be “home” — whether that’s your parents’ house, your apartment, or your dorm room. But before you make the important decision about where to vote, make sure you know the voting rules (and sometimes consequences) of registering to vote in that state.
