Green Bay is Ready for Election Day Voters

Buses are Free; Polls Open at 7 am on 11/3 

(Green Bay, WI) The City of Green Bay’s polling places will be ready at 7 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 3 for Election Day voters, and safety precautions will be upheld at all sites to protect the health of voters and poll workers.

As a courtesy to voters, Green Bay Metro will provide free transportation, including paratransit.

“We appreciate the great cooperation that Green Bay’s voters have demonstrated over the past two weeks of early voting—wearing masks at the polling places, keeping six feet apart from one another, using sanitizer before entering and after leaving their voting site. We expect that same level of consideration for one another on Election Day,” Genrich said. 

Election Day voters are urged to wear masks at the polling place, although masks are not mandatory. 

Also, as of Sunday, the Clerk's Office has received 30,543 absentee ballots from voters. Those absentee ballots represent about 54% percent of the registered voters in Green Bay. All ballots will be counted on Nov. 3. 

Sample ballots

In-person voting can go more quickly for voters who have downloaded a sample ballot via the city of Green Bay website. To find your ward’s sample ballot, go to www.greenbaywi.gov/elections and under “Additional Voting Information” you’ll find a link. Enter your address to view the same ballot you'll see at the polling place. Plan your votes ahead of time! Voters must mark their actual ballot choices at the polling place, but they can bring a sample ballot with them to vote more quickly. 

Election Day registration

Election Day registration is offered at all 16 polling locations for eligible voters who are not registered to vote. To register at their polling location a resident must be a U.S. citizen, 18 years old by Nov. 3, and reside in their ward for at least 28 days. Applicants must have a photo ID and proof of residency. If you’re not sure if you have the correct type of ID, go to www.greenbaywi.gov/elections and look under “Frequently Asked Questions.” Election Day registrants must register and vote at their assigned polling location. You can find your polling place at www.myvote.wi.gov.
