Local government is where it’s at. This is where the rubber hits the road and where actions affect our day-to-day lives. Wisconsin has the spring election on April 4. Local city, village, township and school board positions will be on your ballots. Some court and the state superintendent of public instruction positions will also be on the ballot. Children are our future and our public schools are critical to that future.
If for no other reason, think of the children to motivate you to vote on April 4.
The polls are open from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m.
The place to vote is at your local city, town or village hall. Locations can be found on the county website at http://www.buffalocounty.com/207/Municipalities.
If you aren’t sure of whether you are registered to vote or how or where to register and/or to vote, just contact your local village, city or town clerk or visit the Wisconsin Election Commission’s My Vote Wisconsin website at http://www.myvote.wi.gov/en-us.
Please remember to vote on April 4. Our schools and local governments are very important to our families and communities.
If you need a ride to the polls or help registering to vote, there are folks who will help. Call 608-248-3913 for help or ask your friends, neighbors or relatives.
