Early Voting Begins In Madison, Milwaukee

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Early in-person voting is beginning in Wisconsin’s two biggest cities.

The first early in-person voting location opened in Madison at 7 a.m. The first two locations in Milwaukee are set to open later Monday morning. Early voting will continue in Madison through Nov. 4 and in Milwaukee through Nov. 5. The election is Nov. 8.

Both cities are Democratic strongholds.

Early voting in Wisconsin began Sept. 13 in Land O’Lakes in Vilas County.

Republican lawmakers had passed laws in 2011 and 2014 limiting the window for early in-person voting to the 10 weekdays before the election. A federal judge in July struck down the limitations in July as part of a broader ruling invalidating a host of GOP-authored election laws.
