MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Tuesday, Aug. 8 is the primary election in Wisconsin.

Here's four things you need to know before you vote:

  • Voters need to bring a valid Wisconsin ID with them to the poll.

The Wisconsin Department of Motor Vehicles is staying open until 6 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 8 and Tuesday, Aug. 9 to help voters with last minute requests.

People will walk out with a receipt, which is valid for voting purposes. The actual product will be mailed.

  • It's not too late to register to vote.

Eligible voters can go to their polling site with a form of identification and proof of residency to register to vote on Election Day.

  • Tuesday is a partisan primary.

In a partisan primary, voters have the option to vote for one political party. However, voting for that party must be done down the line. Voters cannot bounce between parties or the ballot will not be counted.

  • Absentee ballots cannot be returned to polls.

Absentee voters can return ballots Monday, Aug. 8 and Tuesday, Aug. 9 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at City Hall. Ballots can also be returned to Central Count at 1901 S. Kinnickinnic Ave. from 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 9.
