The Manitowoc County Clerk has made a prediction for local voter turnout ahead of Tuesday’s mid-Term election. Lois Kiel spoke with Seehafer News yesterday.
Absentee voting has set a new record statewide as Kiel says, municipal clerks have noticed a significant increase in absentee ballot requests.
We also asked Kiel if she would be surprised by a 60-percent voter turnout, locally, next Tuesday.
Kiel also told us her office has prepared ballots for ‘80’-percent..of the county’s eligible voters, “so, nobody should be running out of ballots’ for the mid-term election.
The County Clerk said there’s also a great amount of interest by electors in the Kiel Public School District, which has ‘2’ referendum questions on the ballot: to renovate the athletic facilities at Kiel High School and, for construction of a new performing arts center there. Regarding all the negative ads associated with the election campaign, Lois Kiel adds.
Early absentee voting has been brisk both here in Manitowoc County and statewide, setting a record. For those waiting to cast their ballots Tuesday, all polling places open at 7am and close at 8:00 election night.
