Starting Monday, the City Clerk's Office will be closed to the public except for limited access. Voters do still have the option to vote in person, but they will also be able to vote curbside.

Superior City Clerk Terri Kalan said, “We just want them to call before they come so we can get their ballot ready for them, all of their information, and then if they can call when they pull up, we’ll just run down and give them their ballot, they can vote, and we can take the ballot back, and they’ll be all done.”

Curbside voting in front of the Government Center will be available 9 AM to 4 PM. Voters are asked to have their Wisconsin Driver’s License or I.D. ready. The office number is 715-395-7200.

 The drop boxes are also available for voters who received their ballot in the mail. As the deadline approaches, the City Clerk encourages people to drop their ballots off in person rather than sending them through the mail.

"Ballots that sent out today, it seems that it's taking three or four days to get to them, and then if they mail them back, it could take another three or four days, and there's always that chance that they'll miss the deadline, which is election day, and we don't want that to happen," Kalan said.

The last day to vote in office or curbside is next Friday. The April 7th ballot features the presidential primary, supreme court race, and the local election. The special election to fill Sean Duffy's 7th Congressional District seat in May.
