This election has many people deciding to vote early. One county, in particular, is seeing people pack the polls, even though early voting only started there Monday.
Nearly 300,000 people around the state of Wisconsin have voted early. The Wisconsin Election Commission says 25 percent of voters will either mail in their ballots or vote in person absentee.
"I wanted to get it out of the way," Robert Schanuel said.
"It's more convenient. Get it over and done with," Roger Reinert said.
When it comes to the number of people who are voting early, here's the totals: Sheboygan County, 6,369, Washington County, 10,060 and Racine County 12,296. But Waukesha County already has 29,025 in-person absentee voters, and that is just since Monday. Only Milwaukee and Dane Counties have more.
It's not a surprise to Waukesha County residents.
"I think they are working hard to be on top of their issues," said Bella Benvenuto, a Waukesha County voter.
And though thousands have cast early, Wisconsin is bracing for millions on election day. 
"There is a certain thrill to participating in the election day process," said Kathy Koberstein, a Waukesha County voter.
Early voting ends in Waukesha County on Friday, November, 4.
