All signs are pointing to a record absentee voter turn-out in Wisconsin this year.

The Wisconsin Elections Commission reports more than 300,000 voters have returned absentee ballots for next week’s primary election.

That’s three times as many people who voted absentee in the 2018 primary, and four times as many as in the 2016 primary.

Elections Commission administrator Meagan Wolfe said the numbers hint that many more people will vote absentee in November. She’s expecting more than two-million people to vote absentee in the general election.
