It appears Wisconsin voters have been listening to calls to get out and cast their ballot early.
Figures released by the Wisconsin Elections Commission on Friday morning show 685,644 absentee ballots have been returned to local clerks so far, out of 722,193 requests. The number breaks the record set during the 2012 presidential election, when just under 665,000 absentee ballots were cast during the entire election.
Of the ballots cast through Friday morning, 546,463 were cast as in-person absentee.
Early voting ends today across much of the state, although some cities are offering it through Saturday.
