According to the Urinal-Sentinel,
Over 450 early voters came out to cast absentee ballots in Milwaukee Monday, exceeding expectations and mirroring the unusually high early voting trends being seen statewide.
“It’s very high for the first day of early voting for any election,” explained Milwaukee Election Commission Executive Director Sue Edman. “Generally it’s 10, 15, 20 people.”
According to Edman, 457 voters filed absentee ballots with the commission Monday, quadrupling the early turnout for May’s recall primary and far exceeding the typical general election.
City clerks across the state reported similarly high turnout Monday. Madison numbers also topped 400.
