Voter registration kiosks now available at all Milwaukee Public Library branches
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee Public Libraries are teaming up with the Mayor's Office and Milwaukee Election Commission to get more residents registered to vote.
Starting on Monday, voter registration kiosks are available at all Milwaukee Public Library branches.
Mayor Tom Barrett says only 57% of eligible voters are currently registered, adding that much of that is because some residents don't have the required resources.
"The people that are most likely affected by the changes in the state laws are also the people least likely to have access to steady internet. That's where the library comes in," said Mayor Barrett.
Residents can register to vote using the kiosks at all of Milwaukee's public libraries.
Library staff will be on hand to assist in registering ahead of the fall elections.
