MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Wisconsin’s early voting period begins Tuesday, marking two weeks until Election Day.

Thirty-two early-voting locations will be available to voters throughout Madison, 18 of which open its doors beginning Tuesday.

“A lot of folks like to vote early because the parking is ample, and there’s not a crowd,” Dane Co. Clerk Scott McDonell said.

Registration by mail or online has closed in Wisconsin, but you can still register at one of the early voting sites from Oct. 25 until Nov. 5 or on Election Day, Nov. 8.

Voters can cast their absentee ballot in-person starting Tuesday, Oct. 25 across many Wisconsin communities.

In order to vote in-person absentee, you will need to have a photo ID. A list of acceptable forms can be found here.

If you’re registering on-site you’ll need to bring a proof of residence document. Examples can be found here.

You can vote in-person absentee at any of the locations below regardless of where you live within the city.

There are some new rules to keep in mind. Drop boxes are not allowed, as ruled by the Wis. Supreme Court affecting drop boxes outside of clerks’ offices. McDonell reminds voters, absentee ballots can still be mailed or dropped off in-person.

Also, two pending lawsuits are still asking what’s counted as an acceptable address. McDonell says in Dane Co, you need at least the house number, street and the municipality.

“There is no standard,” he said. “We haven’t had a court ruling that said, ‘This is what an address is,’. and we haven’t had any other authority, so it’s left to each municipality and then to each county to make that determination.”

Once you vote early, absentee ballots will remain sealed and secured until Election Day. Nov. 8, is when they’ll be delivered to voters’ polling places and counted there.

In-person absentee voting ends Nov. 6, two days before Election Day.
