Spring Primary Elections are Tuesday, February 15
If you moved since the last time you voted, you will need to register again. If voting as a Wisconsin resident at your campus address, please keep the following in mind:
- You must have resided at your address for 28 days prior to the election.
- Those students new to campus spring semester will not be able to vote as Milwaukee residents in the Feb. 15 Primary Election because they will have only been residents for 23 days. THUS, new students are encouraged to vote absentee in their home districts for the Feb. 15 Primary if there is a primary in that district. Please check your jurisdiction for information.
- Students who arrived at Marquette in fall 2021will have already established residency unless you changed residence halls or apartments after January 24.
- If you have resided at the same address since January 19, 2022, you must register to vote at least 20 days before the election (by January 26, 2022) by mail or on-line. Alternatively, you can register to vote on Election Day in-person at the polling site.
- Absentee Ballot requests must be made no later than Thursday, February 10, 2022, by 5:00 p.m.
- Information on registration requirements and what identification is needed to register and vote can be found under the FAQs and Mauquette Voter ID.
