Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – Early voting started in Wisconsin yesterday and the city of Eau Claire continues to offer a convenient way for voters to cast their ballot. The drive-thru at Eau Claire City Hall allows voters to complete their ballot from their car.
Voters are greeted at the entrance on Dewey Street and can register on-site. The city clerk says close to 100 people voted within the first two hours of being open yesterday morning.
“One of the reasons I think it’s been very popular is for a lot of people who have mobility issues, it’s a lot easier for them to drive through instead of going to the polling place and standing in line for a long time on election day.”
The drive-thru for Eau Claire city residents only ends on Friday, November 4th. Hours are Monday through Thursday, 9 am to 6 pm. And Friday, from 9 am to four p.m. Altoona is also offering a drive-through voting service.
