Early Voters Stream Into City Hall

The city clerk's office expects about 25 percent of registered voters to have cast their ballots before Election Day.

Nearly a quarter of registered voters in Oak Creek may have already cast their ballot by the time polls open Tuesday, Nov. 6.

Almost 2,800 voted at Oak Creek City Hall through the end of the day Tuesday, City Clerk Catherine Roeske said. Meanwhile, the city mailed out 1,100 absentee ballots, and about 80 percent of those have been returned.

That means more than 20 percent of registered voters had voted as of Tuesday, Roeske said.

"I anticipate the last three days added in will push the city to 25%," Roeske said in an e-mail.

Early voting continues from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday and Friday at city hall, 8640 S. Howell Ave.

Gary Johnson (Libertarian) and Dr. Jill Stein (Green) to be aired tonight on Monday evening, Nov. 5th from 9:00 - 10:30 pm Eastern Time. Perform a worthwhile civic duty, and be certain to listen in on this historic debate so that you can make an informed decision on voting day. Third party candidates who will be on the ballot in most states deserve to be heard. It is a violation of the 1st Amendament rights of third party candidates, and a violation of the free speech rights of every American, for their voices to be silenced. http://freeandequal.org/?v=1
