OFFICE OF THE MILWAUKEE COUNTY ELECTION COMMISSION

TO THE ELECTORS OF THE CITY OF MILWAUKEE, MILWAUKEE COUNTY:

Notice is hereby given of a partisan primary to be held in the City of Milwaukee, Milwaukee County on the 14th day of August, 2012, at which the nominees for the offices named below shall be chosen. The names of the candidates for each office, whose nominations have been certified to or filed in this office, are given under the title of the office under the appropriate party or other designation, each in its proper column, in the sample ballot shown.

INFORMATION TO ELECTORS

Upon entering the polling place, an elector shall state his or her name and address and sign the poll book before being permitted to vote. If an elector is not registered to vote, an elector may register to vote at the polling place serving his or her residence if the elector provides proof of residence. Where ballots are distributed to electors, the initials of two inspectors must appear on the ballot. Upon being permitted to vote, the elector shall retire alone to a voting booth and cast his or her ballot except that an elector who is a parent or guardian may be accompanied by the elector’s minor child or minor ward. An election official may inform the elector of the proper manner for casting a vote, but the official may not in any manner advise or indicate a particular voting choice.

At the partisan primary the elector shall select the party of his or her choice.

Where optical scan voting is used, the elector shall connect the arrow next to the party of his or her choice. The elector shall then connect the arrow next to the name of the candidate of his or her choice for each office for which he or she intends to vote under the party of his or her choice. To vote for a person whose name does not appear on the ballot, the elector shall write in the name of the person of his or her choice in the space provided for a write-in vote, and connect the arrow on the write-in line.

Where touch screen voting systems are used, the elector shall touch the screen next to the party of his or her choice. The elector shall then touch the screen next to the name of the candidate of his or her choice for each office for which he or she intends to vote. To vote for a person whose name does not appear on the ballot, the elector shall type in the name of the person of his or her choice in the space provided for a write-in vote.

The vote should not be cast in any other manner. If an elector spoils an optical scan ballot, he or she shall return it to an election official who shall issue another ballot in its place, but not more than three ballots shall be issued to any one elector. If the ballot has not been initialed by two inspectors or is defective in any other way, the elector shall return it to the election official, who shall issue a proper ballot in its place. The elector may spoil a touch screen ballot at the voting station before the ballot is cast. Not more than five minutes time shall be allowed inside a voting booth. Sample ballots or other materials to assist the elector in marking his or her vote may be taken into the booth and copied. The sample ballot shall not be shown to anyone so as to reveal how the ballot is marked.

After casting his or her vote, the elector shall leave the voting booth and properly deposit the ballot.

After an official optical scan ballot is marked, it shall be inserted in the security sleeve, if provided, so the marks do not show. The elector shall then insert the ballot in the voting device and discard the sleeve, or deliver the ballot to an inspector for deposit. The elector shall leave the polling place promptly.

After an official touch screen ballot is marked, the elector shall leave the polling place promptly.

An elector may select an individual to assist in casting his or her vote if the elector declares to the presiding official that he or she is unable to read, has difficulty reading, writing or understanding English or that due to disability is unable to cast his or her ballot. The selected individual rendering assistance may not be the elector’s employer or an agent of that employer or an officer or agent of a labor organization which represents the elector.

A sample of the official ballots is included. Following is a sample of the official ballots:
