Early Voting Numbers in Wisconsin Break Previous Record
Posted: Nov 7, 2016 7:38 PM CDT
The Wisconsin Election Commission announced today early voting numbers broke the previous record by a big margin.
The commission said nearly 800,000 absentee votes were cast during the early voting period.
That is about 135,400 more early voters than in 2012.
Wisconsin's chief election official said even though absentee voting seems to be growing it doesn't necessarily mean there will be a higher overall turnout.
The commission is predicting that a total of three-point-one million people will cast ballots tomorrow.
That is nearly 70% of Wisconsin's eligible voters.
