KENOSHA – Most offices in the City of Kenosha's Municipal Building, 625 52nd
St., will be closed on Tuesday,
Nov. 6, 2012, the date of the presidential election. City workers are needed to assist at polling places, due to the
high expected voter turnout.
Residents are urged to complete their business with various city departments prior to Tuesday, Nov. 6, or wait
until Wednesday, Nov. 7.
“City departments will not be transacting business in the Municipal Building on election day, in order to have
more personnel available out at the polls to insure an orderly election,” said Mayor Keith Bosman.
The city clerk's office is expecting a record election day turnout of eligible voters. Polls will be open from 7
a.m. to 8 p.m. on election day.
Only Municipal Court and the Kenosha Housing Authority, located in the Municipal Building, will be open on
Nov. 6 during regular hours. All other Municipal Building offices will be closed. The Kenosha Public Museum,
Civil War Museum, Dinosaur Discovery Museum and city libraries will be open during regular hours on Nov. 6.
Trash collection and bus service will continue regular scheduled operations as well.
People who need to register to vote, or have a change of name or address, are encouraged to update their
records prior to Nov. 6 at the city clerk's office, 625 52nd
St., Room 105. People may cast absentee ballots
beginning Oct. 22 and continuing through Nov. 2 at the Municipal Building.
