Muskego Sees Strong Early Voting

City Clerk’s office is ready for a busy election and expecting a big turnout.

Muskego Sees Strong Early Voting

Nearly a quarter of registered voters in Muskego have already voted, according to figures from the Muskego City Clerk’s Office.

So far there have been about 3,850 in-person absentee voters, with two days left to vote in-person at the clerk's office, according to Election Clerk Kim Chavie.

Muskego has about 16,945 registered voters, although people can still register to vote through Election Day.

In-person absentee voting, commonly referred to as “early voting,” began last week and continues through 5 p.m. Friday. Muskego residents can still cast their ballot today and tomorrow at the clerk’s office.

Lines at the clerk’s office for early voting are manageable and moving well, Chavie said.

Muskego typically has a strong voter turnout. Ninety percent of registered voter voted in the last presidential election, 14,573 out of 16,150 registered voters, according to election results.

After voting, the absentee ballot is collected and kept in a vault until Election Day, when all the absentee ballots will be counted.

People chose to vote early because they plan on being out of town for the election, are unavailable on Election Day or simply do not want to wait in line that day.
