If you didn't know, here you go! Go vote 2012

Being a SRD (Special Registration Deputy) through the City of Milwaukee Election Committee, we have an obligation to reach our community to respond to the numerous registration questions and concerns.
Some of the common sense inquiries aren't so common. A good example is when a person only votes every four years, and has moved in the last few years, from either another state, or another zip code, these answers will help. Let's begin with voters' qualifications:

United States citizen
Will be at least 18 years old on the day of election (November 6, 2012)
Must reside at their current City of Milwaukee address for at least 28 consecutive days prior to the election.
Is not currently serving a sentence including probation, parole or extended supervision for a felony conviction.*

If a person does not meet the residency requirement (they moved to their current address less than 28 consecutive days before the next election), they may have two options:
If they are already registered to vote at their last address, they may still vote from that address, but then must re-register after the election.
If they are not registered, they may register and vote using their previous address, where they lived prior to moving to their new address, and then re-register using their new address after the election.
Except for this Presidential Election, a person new to Wisconsin who has not lived in Wisconsin for 28 consecutive days prior to an election may not vote in that election.
*Once probation, parole or extended supervision for a felony conviction is complete, the person's voting rights are restored and they may register to vote and vote in any election.
