Rhinelander District Library is a new location for self-voter registration
The League of Women Voters of the Northwoods (LWVNOW) has announced that the Rhinelander District Library is offering patrons the Voter Education and Registration Assistance Project (VERAP).
VERAP provides community members a new location, the Rhinelander District Library, where they can self-register to vote, and learn what else they need when they vote on Nov. 6, 2018.
The library has an instructional notebook for people to use at library computers for self-registering to vote, either online at www.myvote.wi.gov or via paper registration. The library also has a resource notebook containing up-to-date information on the many questions voters ask such as: when is the next election, how can I vote absentee, who are the candidates on my ballot, and what is an acceptable photo ID?
Remember, you can register to vote four ways in Wisconsin: register in person on election day, Nov. 6, 2018; online and by mail through Oct. 17; or hand deliver a paper registration form to your municipal clerk until Friday, Nov. 2, 2018. Everyone needs a proof of residency to register to vote, and a photo ID to vote.
VERAP will also be available at the Minocqua, Crandon, Eagle River, Tomahawk, Merrill, and Antigo libraries by the end of September.
LWVNOW, a chapter of the US and Wisconsin League of Women Voters, is a non-partisan political organization that neither supports nor opposes candidates for office at any level of government. You can contact us at [email protected] for more information.
