Early voting moved up, absentee encouraged

The polls do not officially open until next month, but the call for social distancing could trigger more absentee voting. The Wisconsin Elections Commission is encouraging voters to vote absentee this year as one way to limit your exposure to the coronavirus. The city of Sturgeon Bay even kicked off early voting on Monday, a week sooner than originally scheduled. If you want to request an absentee ballot, Sturgeon Bay City Clerk Stephanie Reinhardt says it is actually quite easy if you’re already registered.

If you are not registered to vote, Reinhardt says you have until March 18th to do so online or through the mail. If you miss the deadline, you have to head to your municipal clerk’s office to register by April 3rd.
