Helpful Information for the 2014 Fall Election

October 10, 2014


from Wisconsin Council of Churches

Our Christian faith compels us to address the world through the lens of our relationship to God and one another. As American citizens and residents of Wisconsin we are able to participate in open and fair elections that ensure our individual vote will count. We should therefore be concerned with the affairs of government and become acquainted with political issues, in order to bring our Christian witness to bear on public policies – local, state, or national – and exercise our right to vote.

  • Go to the Wisconsin Voter Information site at, select your “Voter Category” and enter your name (under “Voter Search”) or address (under “Address Search”) to find your polling place and see a sample ballot.
  • Last night, the Supreme Court put Wisconsin voter ID requirements on hold for this November’s election. The Republicans’ Photo ID law is likely to be in effect during future state and federal elections, however.
  • Absentee voting – go to for deadlines and other information needed if you need to vote absentee.
  • The date to go to the polls is Tuesday, November 4. You can also register to vote (or re-register if you have changed your name or address) at
