The big 2022 General Election is coming up on Tuesday, November 8. Want to skip the Election Day lines but still vote in-person? You can do just that by voting early at Fiserv Forum. The home of the Milwaukee Bucks will be open for early voting on select dates from October 25 through November 5.
Here’s the schedule:
• Tuesday, October 25: 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.
• Thursday, October 27: 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.
• Saturday, October 29: 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
• Thursday, November 3: 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.
• Friday, November 4: 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.
• Saturday, November 5: 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Eligible voters must use the Johnson Controls Entrance at the corner of 6th Street and Juneau Avenue. Voting will take place just inside the doors, in the lobby. Free parking will be available on Juneau between 6th Street and 5th Street. Curbside voting is also available for those “who cannot enter the arena due to a disability.” Find more information at Milwaukee.gov/earlyvoting.
“Every voter in Milwaukee should be ensured with a safe and convenient way to exercise their right to vote,” said Bucks and Fiserv Forum President Peter Feigin, announcing the plan Tuesday morning. “As a major part of our community, Fiserv Forum is an ideal early voting location where everyone’s voice can be heard in a responsible way. We encourage every eligible voter to cast their ballot.”
“The Bucks are graciously and generously opening the doors of Fiserv Forum for early voting, and I hope this inspires more eligible Milwaukee residents to cast a ballot this fall,” Mayor Cavalier Johnson said. “Voter participation strengthens democracy, and, when Milwaukee voters cast ballots, their voices are heard by elected officials.”
“Student populations often wait until Election Day to update their registration and vote, which can create longer lines and wait times on campus,” said Claire Woodall-Vogg, Executive Director of the Milwaukee Election Commission. “We hope that this convenient location will encourage Marquette and MATC students to skip the Election Day line and vote early.”
And yes, the NBA recently announced that no games will be held on Election Day, November 8.
