APPLETON, WI (WTAQ) - There is some light at the end of the election tunnel after Tuesday’s general election for city clerks and election officials.
Voters won’t be heading to the polls again until next spring.
There have been eight primaries and general elections over the past 14-months. Appleton Clerk Char Peterson says she and her staff have hardly had a single day off, much less work a normal eight hour day during the election cycle.
They also have to multi-task, like handle licensing, permits and work with the city council.
The break is welcomed relief for volunteer election poll workers.
Peterson says prep work for next spring’s election begins in November.
Clerk's offices will spend the next couple months finishing Tuesdady's election paperwork and reporting.
