Marshfield sees record numbers of early voters
By Hub City Times staff
In Marshfield, City Clerk Deb Hall has been processing a record number of absentee ballot requests.
Hall says she will typically issue a little over 2,000 absentee ballots for a presidential primary election. As of April 1, that number had surpassed 3,000.
As for Election Day itself, Hall says all three polling places in the city of Marshfield will be open, but they will have a different look to them.
Hall is experiencing the same thing lots of other clerks are seeing statewide—a shortage of poll workers.
Hall says the city is not cutting back on the number of polling places as other municipalities are doing, and voters will again cast their ballots at the Oak Avenue and Second Street Community Centers and the Wildwood Station pavilion.
April 2 is the last day absentee ballots can be mailed. April 3 is the last day people can register to vote and vote in person at City Hall, noon – 5 p.m.
