Wisconsin’s partisan primary is Tuesday, Aug. 12. – the day when voters will narrow the field of candidates by political party for the fall general election.

According to the state Government Accountability Board, voters who plan to register at a polling place on Election Day must bring an acceptable proof of residence document, such as a utility bill, lease, university identification card or other official document showing the name and current address.

A photo ID, however, will not be required.

Voters may only vote for candidates of one party in the partisan primary. Voters must identify one party – Democratic, Republican, or Constitution – and can choose only candidates in that party.

GAB is predicting that 15 percent of eligible voters will participate in the primary.

Polls will open at 7 a.m.

What a farce the primary election is. Why would any thinking American vote for either one of the two major parties? Both of those are totally corrupt. Some people say "We are voting for the lessor of two evils." Clearly stating that BOTH the Democrat and Republican Parties are evil!! The Primary election should be totally eradicated.
