Voting on Tuesday took on a whole different look than past elections throughout the state of Wisconsin due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Polls were open throughout Door and Kewaunee Counties as extra precautions were taken to protect poll workers and voters who chose to vote in-person. Absentee ballots were strongly recommended by state officials. In Sturgeon Bay, District 6 and 7 voters at the Jaycee Court location were greeted with instructions to keep social distancing and use hand sanitizer when entering to vote. Chief Inspector Stephanie Soucek says the in-person voting went smoothly for the staff and residents.
Soucek says the polling locations had an ample number of workers for the number of voters that came in on Tuesday. Some City of Sturgeon Bay employees helped at various polling locations as City Hall took on some of the west side voters who usually cast a ballot at Bayview Lutheran Church.

Results from the statewide election will be announced on April 13.
