MILWAUKEE -

Redistricting could throw a curve ball to some Wisconsin voters who may have a new polling place or may be voting for different candidates in a new district.

Redistricting is done every 10 years to adjust the boundaries of voting districts to accommodate population shifts. It won't affect a voter's ballot when it comes to the presidential and U.S. Senate races since candidates in those races appear on all Wisconsin ballots.

Polling information can be found at myvote.wi.gov.

Polling clerks are reminding voters to leave political buttons and clothing at home when they go to the polls.
