FDL County Voter Turnout

If Fond du Lac County Clerk Lisa Freiberg is correct just under 30 percent of the County’s registered voters will cast their ballots today. The County has just over 53,000 registered voters and Freiberg predicts 28 percent or 14,850 voters will get out and vote today. She says, “Although there is 64 different types of contests throughout the County there are 10 contested races and then besides that statewide referendum over in the Town of Springvale they are asking the voters over there if they can appoint the Town Clerk over there.” She reminds voters to bring along a form of photo ID to the polls. She says, “Driver’s license, passport, and if you are not registered be prepared to register to vote if you are a new voter or if you have moved since last year or since the February election. Please be prepared to fill out that paperwork to become a registered voter.” Races in the County include a City Council race in Fond du Lac, Village Board Presidency in North Fond du Lac, Mayor’s Race in Ripon, Ripon City Council race, three County Board races, and school board races in Kewaskum, Oakfield and Ripon. There is also the State Supreme Court race and a statewide referendum on eliminating the State Treasurer’s Office. KFIZ will have reports during the Milwaukee Brewers game and also post results on the KFIZ.com website and Facebook page.
