Early Election Voting Underway in Wisconsin

Early election voting is underway at city clerks' offices across Wisconsin.

Voters who can't make it to the polls for the primary election next month are able to cast ballots.

It's the first election since the Legislature put limits on the process.

In-person absentee voting can only be conducted during the two business weeks prior to an election.

Voting is set to take place from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday.

City clerks don't anticipate long wait times to cast a ballot for the primary, but that could be a different story in November when voters will elect Wisconsin's governor.

Opponents of the changes say it's an attempt to disenfranchise certain voters.

One Wisconsin Now activist Scot Ross says the move affects mainly younger people and those living in cities.
