City of Eau Claire considers extended early-voting hours

Eau Claire (WQOW) – With high voter turnout expected for the 2020 elections, the city is considering extended early-voting hours.

City Clerk Carrie Riepl included $8,000 in the 2020 budget proposal to cover the manpower costs.

Right now, early voting is from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

To accommodate 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. workers, Riepl would like to keep her office open until 8 p.m. one week prior to smaller-turnout elections and three weeks before the November presidential election.

The proposal will be part of the proposed budget which is slated for final approval on November 12.
