WI National Guard Members To Assist At Polling Locations
As residents of Wisconsin take to the polls today, more than 2,400 Citizen Soldiers and Airmen from the Wisconsin National Guard have been mobilized to state active duty and stand ready to serve as poll workers in Wisconsin’s election, if needed. Guard members will be on hand to support the Wisconsin Elections Commission and county clerks across Wisconsin.
The troops completed necessary training, received assignments from their county or municipal clerks, and assisted with polling place setup on Monday. Wisconsin National Guard members reside in all 72 Wisconsin counties and will serve in the county in which they reside wearing civilian clothes and serving in the roles of traditional poll workers, if needed. Guard members completed Wisconsin Elections Commission-provided training for poll workers and other roles at a polling station.
