Milwaukee’s fall primary election is coming up, with in-person voting set for Tuesday, August 11th. Here is everything you need to know about the election:

In-Person Early Voting

Early voting will run from July 28 to Aug. 9 at three locations:

  • The Zeidler Municipal Building, 841 N. Broadway
  • Midtown Center, 5700 W. Capitol Drive
  • Manitoba School, 4040 W. Forest Home Ave

The facilities will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekends.

Voting on election day will be offered at far more locations this fall compared with April, when just five of the city’s 180 polling sites were open. The city will have at least 160 polling places in August and possibly more than that in November, Woodall-Vogg said.

Volunteers Needed

In response to a request from the City of Milwaukee Election Commission, Sherman Park Community Association has decided to again oversee the Adopt-A-Site polling location at the Mary Ryan Boys & Girls Club, 3000 N. Sherman Blvd. which we have historically been in charge of.
We need volunteers! The hope is we will have volunteers so that no one has to spend an inordinate amount of time working at the polling site. We are also putting in place protocols and equipment designed to protect those that are working the polls: masks, gloves, sanitizer for people and equipment, face shields, and plexiglass will all be provided.
If you would like to volunteer as an election inspector or if you have any questions do not hesitate to contact us no later than 5:00p.m. Thursday, July 16, 2020.
