Early voting in presidential race begins Monday in Wisconsin

MADISON — Voters in Wisconsin can begin casting ballots in the presidential race on Monday.

That is a little over two weeks before the state's April 5 primary where a seat on the state Supreme Court is also at stake.

It marks the first presidential election where voters will be required to show photo identification in order to cast their ballots. Early voting runs through 5 p.m. on Friday April 1.

There is no official turnout prediction yet from the state elections board.

But local clerks are preparing for long lines both because of the new photo ID requirement and the high interest in the presidential race where Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump are looking to Wisconsin to solidify their leads.
