MADISON, Wis. (AP) — After shattering early voting records, Wisconsin voters are getting a final chance Tuesday to cast ballots in schools, libraries, churches and community buildings.

Both sides are closely watching absentee and in-person voting for any irregularities that could make the difference.

In the wait for results, election officials urged patience.

They say ballot counting could stretch into Wednesday and possibly beyond.
