Coronavirus scaring away poll workers

The City of Sturgeon Bay is looking for poll workers. Tuesday’s election will be a bit different across Wisconsin, with a majority of voters having registered for absentee ballots, but polling locations are still open, and they must be staffed. Poll workers tend to be older, the group most vulnerable to exposure from the coronavirus, and it is feared many will back out. Clerk Stephanie Reinhardt says the uncertainty makes it hard to know how many workers they’ll need.

 


A training session is scheduled for Thursday morning in the council chambers. Due to limited space, Reinhardt recommends that those interested in attending call beforehand to make sure they can be accommodated.
