Record Turnout for Pre-Election Voting
MILWAUKEE -- In-person absentee voting has been very popular this year. According to the Chair of the Election Commission, Neil Albrecht, more Milwaukee voters turned out for pre-election voting than ever before.
"We've already surpassed the number of early absentee voters that we've had in 2008. There's been an incremental increase in every presidential election," He estimates an average of 6,000 Milwaukee voters each day. By the time in-person absentee voting ends on Friday night, he says 10-15% of Milwaukee voters will be done casting their ballots.
"It's really important to vote. As a citizen, it's your duty so I figured, why not come out today?" says David Mesick who voted at the Zeidler building.
You can still register to vote and cast your ballot on election day, November 6th.
