***Please note that you can only cast votes for candidates of ONE PARTY tomorrow, as this is a PARTISAN primary election. Ballots that contain votes cast for candidates of more than one party will not be counted !***

Wisconsin’s partisan primary is Tuesday, August 14, 2012. The purpose of the August partisan primary is to select party nominees for the November 6, 2012 general election. Partisan primary elections allow political parties to nominate candidates the political party will support against the nominees of other political parties. This primary date is changed from September to August to allow time between the primary and the November general election to accommodate military and overseas voters.

August 14, 2012, voters may vote within one political party for the entire ballot, sometimes called straight ticket voting. The November General Election is not straight ticket and allows mixed party voting. August 14, 2012, voters will be provided primary ballots that include multiple political parties, predominantly Democrat and Republican; however, a voter may cast votes only for one party. Wisconsin’s open primary law does not require voters to make a public declaration of party preference as required in other states.
