Eau Claire (WQOW) – Absentee voting has opened in the city of Eau Claire.
Starting Monday, the polls are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Eau Claire City Hall complex until November 2 for any eligible voter who lives in the city of Eau Claire.
All you need is to bring a valid photo ID.
If you’re not registered to vote, or not sure if you are, you can register there. You will need to bring a photo ID and proof of residence – meaning a water, electric, phone or cable bill.
“Just in case they’re not registered, they can make sure,” said Eau Claire City Elections Specialist, Cindy Anderson. “I would highly recommend that you come down and get registered, don’t wait. “The last governor’s (election) was about 3,000 people that came down and voted in person. I do expect that to increase because previously it was two weeks and we are running for three weeks. There is construction unfortunately, but people have made their way – just follow the signs.”
You can find the elections office through the alleyway behind 203 S. Farwell Street. There are signs to guide your way.
