Pittsfield awarded Voter Challenge trophy

GREEN BAY — Voters in the town of Pittsfield have bragging rights following last week's elections.

According to the nonpartisan "Project VOTE," the community had the most voters percentagewise vote in the Nov. 6 elections. More than 92 percent of registered voters in Pittsfield went to the polls

For its efforts, the town received the Voter Challenge trophy Thursday morning during a ceremony at Green Bay's City Hall.

"This is the second time within two years that I believe we have gotten the trophy; I think it is an indicator of the civic responsibility that our citizens show. That they do step out to vote, and they take that responsibility seriously," said town chairman Keith Deneys.

Pittsfield previously won the honor for the fall 2010 elections.

The town of Lawrence, with a turnout of 90.52 percent, and the village of Suamico, with a turnout of 88.14 percent, rounded out the top three municipalities in the voter challenge.

Overall, 88.6 percent of registered Brown County voters went to the polls last week.
