Copy-Polls open for Wisconsin primary elections

Posted: Updated:

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Polls are open in Wisconsin where voters are making decisions in a primary election.

Voters need to show a show photo ID before casting a ballot Tuesday. Two federal judges have ruled people who can't get IDs can vote by affidavit or with a special receipt from the state Department of Transportation, but those decisions won't take effect until November.

The primary is open, which means people don't have to be registered members of a party to vote in that party's primary. But people can't vote in both parties' primaries. The polls close at 8 p.m.

Polling place locations can be found online.
