274 voters registered at McIntyre Library!

In advance of the November 6 Presidential Election, librarians and staff at UW-Eau Claire’s McIntyre Library added voter registration to the list of services provided in the library. Eleven librarians and staff were trained and certified as Special Registration Deputies in the City of Eau Claire. Until the legal deadline of October 17, they provided the UW-Eau Claire campus with access to voter registration 8:30 am-midnight during week.

After October 17, Wisconsin state law requires that voters register at the office of the City Clerk in the city where they want to register, or at the polls on Election Day. Although the Special Registration Deputies at McIntyre Library can no longer help students, staff, and faculty to register to vote, the library can provide directions to anyone who needs to visit the Eau Claire City Clerk in order to register to vote.

With questions about voter registration at the McIntyre Library, contact Robin Miller, Research & Instruction Librarian, at millerob@uwec.edu or (715) 836-3132.
