Thousands in Madison vote early ahead of spring election Tuesday

MADISON (WKOW) — More than 11,000 people in Madison have voted early ahead of the spring election on Tuesday.

The city of Madison clerk tweeted 457 people voted absentee on Sunday, the final day to vote early. 1,070 people filled out their ballots on Saturday and 1,221 on Friday.

Nearly 8,500 voted in the days leading up to the final weekend of early voting, according to the clerk.

In person absentee voting continued as it had before the lame-duck session in December, when lawmakers passed a law limiting early voting to make the system more universal among municipalities. County clerks were concerned those changes could make the election process complicated.

A liberal action group filed a lawsuit to challenge the measure to limit early voting, claiming it is unconstitutional.

A judge struck down the early voting restrictions in January.

County clerks are still waiting on a final ruling, but moving forward with early voting as in previous elections.
