Watch a live stream of Mayor Barrett's remarks below (scheduled for 3:45 p.m.):

MILWAUKEE – Mayor Tom Barrett will report on the in-person absentee voting numbers since early voting began on September 26.

A ruling by United States District Judge James Peterson, in response to a lawsuit filed by One Wisconsin Institute and Wisconsin Citizen Action, lifted restrictions to early voting that was enacted by the Wisconsin Legislature.  This ruling allowed Milwaukee, Madison and large urban areas to expand their early voting hours, and to offer those hours at multiple locations.

Milwaukee, for the first time, opened three early voting sites: the Midtown Center (north central), the Forest Home Library (south central) and the Zeidler Municipal Building (downtown).

The final day to cast an in-person absentee ballot is Saturday, November 5.
