What you need to know before heading to the polls

Eau Claire (WQOW) – The partisan primary is now just days away. We want to help you make sure you’re prepared for the polls.

Eau Claire County Clerk Carrie Riepl said mark your ballot carefully, because you only get three chances to do it right. Of course, you can only vote for one party in the primary here in Wisconsin.

If you select more than one party at the top of your ballot, it could be voided, but if you select one, and accidentally vote for two different parties below, it won’t be.

"It will count the votes in that party, even if you cross over vote in the other parties, it will still count the ones in the party you selected," Riepl said.

It won’t count your votes for the opposite party you selected.

Voting is August 14, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. If you are a registered voter, all you’ll need is a photo ID. If you aren’t registered, you’ll need to bring in proof of residence too. For more information on how to find where you polling place is, visit myvote.wi.gov, or call the Eau Claire City Elections Office at 715-839-4913.
