MADISON (AP) - Former U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold plans to lead an effort to get people to vote early in the Gov. Scott Walker recall election.
Feingold planned to meet with voters Tuesday afternoon in Middleton to increase awareness about absentee voting options, voter registration and other information. Feingold planned to lead the group to the Middleton clerk's office to vote.
A similar event was planned in Eau Claire led by state Sen. Kathleen Vinehout and Pat Kreitlow, a former state senator who is running for Congress in the 7h district.
In-person absentee voting began Monday and runs through June 1.
Walker faces Democrat Tom Barrett in the June 5 recall election. Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch and four other Republican lawmakers also face recall votes.
