City residents wishing to vote absentee can use one of two ballot drop boxes for the spring primary.

The primary will include a six-way race for Superintendent Dept. of Public Instruction between candidates Sheila Briggs, Joe Fenrick, Troy Gunderson, Shandowlyon Hendricks-Williams, Deborah Kerr, Steve Krull, and Jill Underly.

Residents in the 9th District will also decide the two final candidates for its aldermanic seat. Three candidates are running for the council seat: incumbent Polly Dalton, and challengers Brian Beaulieu and Duane Munz.

One ballot drop box is located in front of the County-City Building, 1515 Strongs Ave. The other is at Dreyfus University Center, 1015 Reserve St.

Both ballot drop boxes will be available to city residents until 5 p.m. on Feb. 15.

City residents must register to vote if they have never registered before, or if they have moved, if they have changed their name, or if they have not voted during the previous four years.

Voters can register at the city clerk’s office up to the Friday before election day, or at the polls on the day of the election.

The spring primary is on Feb. 16.
