EAU CLAIRE COUNTY, Wis. (WEAU) - The Eau Claire County Board of Supervisors voted in favor of putting an advisory referendum question regarding abortion on the April ballot.

The question will read “Should the Wisconsin Legislature repeal the state’s 1849 abortion ban law?” This will be a non-binding referendum question, meaning the vote is a statement rather than an action.

The board discussed adding the question during its board meeting on January 17 with public comment from community members.
