LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - There are a couple of things to keep in mind as you head to the polls.
The most important is to know where to vote and if you're registered. If you aren't registered, you can register at the polls.
Here are some other reminders:
-Due to state law, voters can request up to three hours unpaid time off from work in order to vote.
-All political items should be left at home.
-Polls open at 7:00 AM and close at 8:00 PM. Anyone who wants to vote needs to be in line before the polls close.
-And because of a change in state law, there is no straight party voting. That means residents will have to vote for each candidate for office separately.
Election observers must follow the rules: Election observers are welcome at every polling place, but they must obey the instructions of the chief election inspector, and may not interact with voters. Only Wisconsin electors may challenge another voter's eligibility, and there are specific criteria and limitations on challenges. Observers who disobey will be asked to leave, and may not observe at other polling places on Election Day. Rules for election observers are available at the polling place and on the G.A.B. website: http://gab.wi.gov/clerks/education-training/election-observers
