LA CROSSE, WI (WXOW)—Early voting in Wisconsin began last Monday; anyone may vote by in person absentee ballot at their local City Clerk's office or you can request an absentee ballot by mail.
The government accountability board said a quarter of a million voters have requested absentee ballots so far.
After they're filled out and returned, absentee ballots are not actually recorded until the day of the election.
So if you voted in person or mailed your ballots to the City Clerk's office, those ballots will remain at the office until the general election November 6.
When it comes to keeping those ballots safe, La Crosse City Clerk Teri Lehrke said they are all kept safe locked up in her office.
"No, they do not have to worry about the security of their absentee ballot," Lehrke said. "We do keep them properly secured here and every ballot that is received by us will be delivered to the polling place on election day and be processed at the polls.
The last day to vote by absentee ballot is Friday, November 2.
