MADISON — The Wisconsin Elections Commission released some important information voters should know ahead of Election Day on Nov. 3.

The first thing, although masks are not required for voting on Election Day, the Wisconsin Elections Commission unanimously recommends all voters wear one.

As a voter, it is important to know that your ballot cannot be refused for not wearing a mask at the polls.

Second, leave political items at home when heading to the polls.

According to the Elections Commission, "it’s against the law anywhere people are voting, including within 100 feet of the entrance to a polling place."

Anyone found guilty of electioneering may be fined up to $1,000.

Third, acceptable ID is needed to vote, however, your current address does not need to be on your ID.

Your Wisconsin driver license or state ID card does not need a “REAL ID” star in the corner to be used when voting.
