It won't quite equal 2004, but voter turnout is expected to be quite high for this statewide. I heard Kathy Nickolaus, Waukesha County's Clerk, predict 65 percent. I'll be greeting voters at Hawthorne Elementary all day Tuesday. Polls open at 7:00 a.m. and I expect to be there from 6:00 a.m. till 11:00 or so at night. I'm looking forward to the steady stream of voters keeping us busy.
As always, even if we know you, state your last name, first name, and address. Polls are open until 8:00 p.m., so if you want to avoid a long line I'd suggest not coming at 7:00 a.m. when there's guaranteed to be a line. Lines are quite unpredictable and fluctuate within the wards throughout the day, but close to 8:00 p.m. most people have already voted.
Hopefully you haven't waited till Tuesday to register to vote, but if you have make sure you bring your driver license or state I.D. or know it's number. We'll need your Soc. Security number if you don't have a license or I.D.. Also, you'll need proof of residency for the last 10 days - a bank statement, utility bill, something like that.
I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow.
