Second Stevens Point ballot drop box installed on UWSP campus
For the City Times
STEVENS POINT – Mayor Mike Wiza and UWSP Student Government President Collin McNamara have announced the installment of a second city absentee ballot drop box.
The box was installed in front of the Dreyfus University Center on the UWSP campus. SGA allocated funds, along with a private donation, raised just under the $2,030 for the project.
“Our partnership with UWSP’s student government is further strengthened by this collaboration” said Mayor Wiza. “We want to provide as many safe and secure voting options as we can and President McNamara and their team recognize that, too. Making the voting process as simple as possible is something we both continually strive for.”
The box will be emptied multiple times per day and is under 24-hour camera surveillance.
“These drop boxes are for all Stevens Point residents, not just students, to drop their official absentee ballots,” a city release said.
Absentee ballots can be requested online at myvote.wi.gov, through the city website stevenspoint.com, or through the city clerk’s office.
