Milwaukee to launch early drive-thru voting in effort to eliminate COVID-19 exposure
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The City of Milwaukee Election Commission will be launching a drive-up early voting option for voters starting March 28 outside of the Zeidler Municipal Building, 841 N. Broadway.
The model will eliminate exposure to COVID-19 for election workers and the voting public.
The Milwaukee Election Commission says drive-up voting will be available on both Saturdays and Sundays preceding the election from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m., and Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Early voting will end on Sunday, April 5.
Parking spaces will be reserved for drive-up voters along E. Kilbourn Avenue between Market Street and N. Broadway, and along Broadway between Kilbourn Avenue and E. Wells Street.
Election officials will work with people in their vehicles to review photo ID and issue their absentee ballot.
Executive Director Neil Albrecht encourages residents to avoid in-person voting and vote by mail or at the drive-up site.
You can apply for an absentee ballot at myvote.wi.gov or by calling 414-286-VOTE.
