POLLING LOCATION & HOURS:  Town of Sevastopol residents vote at the town hall located at 4528 State Highway 57, Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin (next door to Sevastopol School in Institute).  Wisconsin municipalities have uniform polling hours beginning at 7:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m.

PHOTO ID:  Wisconsin residents are required to show proof of identification in order to obtain a ballot, both at the polls and by absentee.  In most cases, this will be a Wis driver's license or Wis-issued identification card.  Photo ID requirements are different than proof of residence requirements.  Your driver's license may not have your current address, but it will have your name and photo ID--that is sufficient for Photo ID.  The Wisconsin Division of Motor Vehicles has a process to allow people to obtain a free State ID card for voting purposes, even if the person does not have a birth certificate.   Go to Wisconsin Voter Information website at  https://myvote.wi.gov/ for information and instructions.
