MADISON (WKOW) -- In-person absentee voting is off to a strong start in Wisconsin, with more than 225,000 residents requesting absentee ballots for the November 6th general election.
The Government Accountability Board released the numbers on Friday. The board said as of late Thursday, at least 225,209 absentee ballots had been issued by Wisconsin's local election officials.
"In the 2008 election, there were 633,610 absentee ballots, and two-thirds were cast in the clerk's office. The numbers of absentee voters continues to grow," said Kennedy. "There could be many reasons; voter enthusiasm and convenience."
