Early Voting All Over Wisconsin! Grab a Friend and Head for the Early Voting!!

Early voting in Wisconsin began Oct. 22 and wraps up at the close of business Friday. Applications for an absentee ballot sent by mail must arrive at municipal clerks’ offices by the end of the business day Thursday.

More than 225,000 Wisconsin residents had requested absentee ballots as of late Thursday, according to state election officials. Updated numbers are expected today.

During the 2008 presidential election, one in five Wisconsin voters used absentee ballots. Officials expect about the same numbers this year, according to a statement released this week by Kevin Kenned, director of the state Government Accountability Board.

Clerks across Wisconsin say voters appreciate the convenience of early voting — officially known as in-person absentee voting — even though the Legislature this session shortened the period in which to cast votes by two weeks.
