Milwaukee IDs 5 in-person voting centers for election day, expands weekend drive-up hours
MILWAUKEE — The City of Milwaukee Election Commission has named five centers available for in-person voting on Election Day, April 7.
Three aldermanic districts will be assigned to each voting center. Due to insufficient staffing levels, the city’s usual 180 neighborhood-based voting sites will not be open. The city has seen its staff of 1,400 election workers decrease to just 350 workers this year.
In-person voting centers will be available at the following locations:
- Aldermanic Districts 1*, 3 and 6: Riverside High School, 1615 E. Locust St.

- Aldermanic Districts 4*, 12 and 14: South Division High School, 1515 W. Lapham Blvd.
- Aldermanic Districts 7*, 10, and 15: Washington High School, 2525 N. Sherman Blvd.
- Aldermanic Districts 8, 11, and 13: Hamilton High School, 6215 W. Warnimont Ave.
- District 1, Ward 47 (normally at Hampton School) will be voting at Washington High School
- District 4, Ward 181 (normally at Charles Allis) will be voting at Riverside High School
