GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV)-- Voters headed to the polls for Tuesday's Primary Elections should be aware of some changes.

The Government Accountability Board is reminding voters to bring a proof of residence with for those wishing to register; that includes items like utility bills or leases.

Voters must have lived at their current address for at least 28 days. 

In the primaries, voters can only vote for candidates in the partisan party--meaning you either vote for all democrats, republicans, or independents.

Voters can't cross party lines. 

Voters should also avoid wearing any political paraphernalia.

“It’s best that you don’t wear pins, t-shirts saying which way you’re going to vote.  Just don’t have any of that on you," said Green Bay City Clerk, Kris Teske.

Teske said the most confusing part about the primary is that you cannot vote across party lines--meaning you have to vote for all democrats or all Republicans.

“Make sure you understand the ballot because you only get 3 ballots and if you don’t get it right the third time, you can’t vote, she said.

The polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Jenn Sullivan Local 5 News.
