The Dane County Voter ID Coalition is holding a voter education event ahead of the April 4Spring Election. Taking place at every Madison Public Library on Saturday, March 25, this is the latest installment of their “Check Out Voting” events. Each library will feature a special voter area staffed by Voter Education Ambassadors who will provide voter ID information, explain the resources available in securing an ID to vote, and provide nonpartisan handouts on the races and candidates. City of Madison residents will already be able to register and vote in-person absentee at each location.
The event is organized with the assistance and support of the Madison City Clerk and the Madison public libraries.
“There’s typically low turnout in spring elections. We want to help people understand that it’s important to vote in every election, and local elections can have the greatest impact on their daily life. We’re helping individuals get fully ready to vote and understand what’s on the ballot, preparing them to cast their ballot. These are fun events where voters can feel comfortable taking the time to get their questions answered,” said Ingrid Rothe, co-chair of the Coalition and Vice President of the League of Women Voters of Dane County.
