Though Election Day is still two weeks away, voting officially got under way Monday in Wisconsin with the start of early voting.
In Oak Creek, 315 residents cast a ballot Monday, City Clerk Catherine Roeske said. It wasn't quite as many as anticipated, but turnout was steady throughout the day, she said.
Early voting at city hall, 8640 S. Howell Ave., continues through Friday, Nov. 2 during regular business hours (8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday).
An increasing number of people have taken advantage of early voting over the last several elections. Roeske said she expects upwards of 20 percent of Oak Creek registered voters to cast a ballot prior to Nov. 6.
