NEW DATA ON POSSIBLE FEDERAL CASE VS WALKER ONE Your employer must give you time off on election day to go vote- it's the law! But you have to request it before election day, so tell your boss as soon as you can. If they say no or threaten your job/wages, call us: 414-274-0925 . Wisconsin law: 1) Up to 3 consecutive hours are allowed off. Employer may decide when hours are taken. 2) Time off is not required to be paid. 3) Employee must request leave before election day. To see if you're registered to vote at your current address, and to verify your polling location, check the Wisconsin Voter Public Access website here.

Bring your photo ID and proof of residency, such as a lease or a current utility bill.
