MILWAUKEE -- Mayor Tom Barrett reported on Wednesday, October 12th on the number of residents who have taken advantage of in-person absentee voting opportunities in Milwaukee.

Since September 26th, more than 6,100 in-person absentee ballots have been submitted at the three early voting locations throughout the City.

There are 725 hours of in-person absentee voting available in the city, including extended weekend and evening hours, that begin six weeks before the presidential election in November. Officials say that represents a 600% increase in hours from previous election years.

Along with offering early voting at the Frank P. Zeidler Municipal Building, both the Midtown Center (N. 56th St. and Capitol Drive) and Forest Home Library (1432 W. Forest Home Avenue) are in-person absentee voting sites.

    I’m afraid that there is a loophole for voter fraud here. While I’m happy to see people voting I hope they are informed voters. Can’t trust info from sound bites and head lines.
