Don’t forget: Vote at Hoffman Hall

By Correne Martin

Tuesday, Feb. 21, will be the first election in which Prairie du Chien’s entire electorate will cast votes at one location, Hoffman Hall. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. for the spring primary election. The state superintendent of public instruction is the only race on the ballot.

Voting will take place in the Hoffman Hall gymnasium. When voters walk into the room, there will be one registration desk for all, but then the wards will be broken out into separate stations, according to City Clerk Tina Fuller.

“The wards will be grouped the same as they were at the other polling places,” she stated. “Those (ward residents) who voted at the Armory will still vote together and the same goes for those who formerly voted at city hall and the nursing home.”

In each ward, the process will be the same as it always has been, she assured.
