WISCONSIN - You will soon be able to cast your vote ahead of the November 6th general election. That's because early voting begins Monday in Wisconsin.
No matter which campaign speech you heard this weekend, you probably heard something about getting out the vote, and getting it done, early.
Early voting, also known as in-person absentee, starts Monday in Wisconsin. You can vote early by going to your local clerk's office.
The process of casting your ballot is just like on November 6th. It's already been going on for weeks in other states.
"We just can't wait to cast our votes for President Obama," said Olivia Butts, a UW-Oshkosh senior.
College Democrats at UW-Oshkosh like Butts say they're so revved up for early voting, they're camping out overnight outside city hall.
"As a college student, we have really busy schedules and we may not be able to make it to vote on election day. So this gives us another option," said Butts.
Republican volunteers in Green Bay say they've received large interest from supporters to cast ballots early.
"There are so many people who have been waiting for the day they can vote Obama out of office. We're getting a great response from it," said Michael Jadin, the GOP Field Office Director in Green Bay.
Both Democrats and Republicans agree that more people having access to different times for voting will help include more voters in the political process.
Early voting in Wisconsin runs through Friday, November 2nd.
