Two Oak Creek Polling Places Will Change

Amid issues with space and accessibility, residents in two Oak Creek aldermanic districts will vote in different places the next time they go to the polls.

Voters who cast ballots at (4th District) will now vote at , while those who normally go to will vote at (5th District).

City officials worked with the Oak Creek-Franklin School District to find alternative sites. In addition to accessibility and space issues, traffic has also been a concern, Superintendent Sara Burmeister said in a letter to council members.

The city will mail postcards to all affected residents informing them of the change. It takes effect in time for the next election on Aug. 14, when the U.S. Senate primary will be among the races on the ballot.

The Common Council on Tuesday unanimously approved moving the polling places.
