Voting Law Changes

Governor Walker signed the Voter ID bill into effect on May 25, 2011.  One of the changes to voting procedures included in the bill are the number of days a person must reside in the municipality in order to be able to vote.  A person must have lived in the Village of Bayside for 28 days prior to an election to vote in Bayside, otherwise they must vote at their previous residence.  The bill also eliminates the straight party voting choice except for Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee voter on the federal write-in absentee ballot. 


Absentee voting in-person has changed to between the opening of business on the third Monday before Election Day and 5 pm or the close of business, whichever is later, on the Friday before Election Day.  Voters will be required to provide photo ID and be required to sign the poll books when they vote.
