CHIPPEWA FALLS — Two years ago, the Republican Party nominated three people to be election poll workers in Chippewa Falls.

This year, Chippewa Falls City Clerk Bridget Givens received a list with 43 names from the GOP. In comparison, the Democratic Party nominated just two people to work elections in the city. Between the two parties and dozens of residents who are unaffiliated, a total of 125 people signed up to be poll workers — likely twice the number needed.
