MILWAUKEE — The City of Milwaukee is getting new ballot drop-off boxes this week as the election approaches.

According to the city, the boxes are much safer and more secure for voters. They will be permanently placed across the city by the Department of Public Works this week.

The Wisconsin Election Commission is hoping these boxes will last years to come, giving Milwaukee residents another method of voting.

The new boxes will be available to drop off your ballot up until 7:30 p.m. on election night.

If you've placed your ballot in one of the older boxes, do not worry. Election Commission staff are accompanying the DPW workers to ensure that all ballots are received from the old boxes and new security seals will be placed on the new boxes.
