Where do Beloit students vote?
Election Day is just hours away, and while millions have already cast their votes early across the country, the results of those votes won’t be known until the polls close on Tuesday. If you haven’t already gone to the polls or sent a ballot through the mail there’s no need to worry about not being able to take a part in Election Day.
Wisconsin election laws make it easy to register to vote, allowing you to register to vote at the polls on Election Day, even if you aren’t already registered. To do so, Beloit College students simply need to bring their Beloit College ID and a proof of residency. According to Beloit’s website, a fee receipt including your current name and current address works.
If you’re not a Beloit College student you will need to provide your driver’s license or state ID and an approved proof of residence which can be a real property tax bill or receipt for the current year, a lease with your current name and address, a paycheck or direct deposit slip which also includes your name and address. For more valid forms make sure to visit Beloit’s website.
On Tuesday, students who live on campus will need to head over to First Congregational Church located on 801 Bushnell St. just a short walk from campus. The polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. If you’re not a student living on campus you may have a different polling place but you can call the City Clerk’s office or visit myvote.wi.gov/en-us to find out where to go.
It is also important to remember that the presidential election won’t be the only thing on the ballot. Make sure to also cast a vote for the senator, a representative in congress, and the Rock County treasurer.
Regardless of who you’re planning to vote for tomorrow, make sure to join the millions of citizens who are expected to vote.
