Tuesday an election for the history books


On April 7, Prairie du Chien poll workers conducted a drive-through election at Hoffman Hall for city voters, in an effort to minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus among election officials and the public. Voters in vehicles (and some on foot) were directed through the parking lot to one of two lanes, split with three wards assigned to each. Underneath tents set up to protect workers from the elements, officials assisted voters with registering if necessary, showing proof of residence and the rest of the voting process—all through a crack in the driver’s side window. Pens and clipboards were sanitized between each use, and hand sanitizer was offered to voters prior to casting their ballot. Similar drive-through voting options were offered in municipalities across the region Tuesday. The city also issued about 840 absentee ballots, which is about 75 percent higher than a usual election.
