Oshkosh adds Saturday hours to early voting period

By Miles Maguire

At the request of Council Member Jake Krause, the city of Oshkosh has added Saturday hours for early voters in this year’s elections.

City Hall will be open Saturday, Oct. 27, from 9 a.m. to noon for early voting.

Krause said that other “progressive” communities like Madison and Milwaukee had expanded voting times to include Saturday hours and he thought Oshkosh should do the same.

Oshkosh citizens who wish to take advantage of early voting can request an absentee ballot by mail or stop by the city clerk’s office during designated hours. The Wisconsin Elections Commission explains the process here.

To beat the rush on Election Day, Nov. 6, Oshkosh voters can cast absentee ballots at City Hall starting Oct. 15. Staff in the city clerk’s office, on the first floor, will issue and accept ballots from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays through Nov. 1

The office will be open an extra 30 minutes on Friday, Nov. 2.
