City of Kewaunee ready for primary election

City of Kewaunee Clerk Terri Decur says staffing for the primary election on August 11th is in much better shape than the runup to the spring contest. Several of the same procedures will be in place, including proper social distancing, face masks, and protective dividers between those voting and poll workers. Decur says that roughly four times as many people are already registered for absentee ballots compared to normal.


Applications continue to pour in so that ratio will only go higher. Poll workers tend to be older, but there has been a new demographic getting involved since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Decur says the city has made multiple hires in just the past few weeks.
