NOW: What you need to know ahead of Election Day in Wisconsin

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Wisconsin's spring election is Tuesday, April 5. As of Monday morning, April 4, more than 27,500 absentee ballots had been counted.

Voters who still have their ballots should keep them or throw them away. Residents will have to vote in person on Tuesday.

"It's too late to mail it. We have to receive it by the end of Election Day at 8 p.m. but those voters still have a right to go to their polling place," Milwaukee Election Commission Executive Director Claire Woodall-Vogg said.

Woodall-Vogg said they have received 3,000 more absentee ballots for the spring election, so far, than the total counted in February.

Voters should also double check their polling location. 

The shapes of some of Milwaukee's wards changed after redistricting in January.

Tuesday, there will be 180 polling places open.

Voters can still register on Election Day with their photo ID and proof of address if it's different from the ID.

"If you don't have the right photo ID you can still cast a provisional ballot in Wisconsin and you have until Friday at 4pm to bring us your valid photo ID," Vogg said.

Milwaukee's ballots are printed in both English and in Spanish.

Some polling places have bilingual poll workers, if not, ask for the chief inspector for help.
