Elections for the First District Assembly, Wisconsin’ 8th United States Congressional District, and President are helping set the pace for early voting in northeast Wisconsin. Absentee voting and early voting usually goes up in Presidential election years, but it is especially true this year. Kewaunee and Algoma each had well over 100 ballots requested before the November 8 general election. Algoma city clerk Michelle Seidl says if you are sitting on a ballot, do not wait until the last moment to throw it in the mail or drop it off.
Algoma joined Kewaunee (September 26) and Sturgeon Bay (October 10) in early voting on Monday. You have until November 4 to vote in-person absentee at your city clerk’s office. Seidl reminds voters to also have proper identification with them in order to vote.
