In an effort to better serve our Spanish speaking voters, the Government Accountability Board has recently made 20 translated election administration forms, resources and polling place notices available on our website.  In addition to previously available Spanish-language forms such as the Voter Registration Form (GAB-131) and the Absentee Ballot Application (GAB-121), the G.A.B. is now providing additional materials for use by election officials.

All required polling place notices have been translated and are available for your use.  In addition, other resources such as Spanish-language provisional voting instructions have also been created.    Please use these documents at your discretion to supplement the information that you currently provide to voters.  Printable and downloadable versions of the documents can be found in the ‘Forms’ section on our website (http://gab.wi.gov/forms/spanish).

If you have additional questions, please contact the G.A.B. Help Desk at (608) 261-2028, toll-free at (866) VOTEWIS (868-3947), or by email at GABHelpDesk@wi.gov.  Thank you.
