MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin gubernatorial hopeful Mary Burke is voting early.

Burke, a Madison Democrat looking to unseat Republican Gov. Scott Walker, voted Tuesday morning at Madison’s city hall. Other voters watched as Burke strode into the office with a gaggle of reporters, got her ballot, filled it out and turned it back in.

Election Day is Nov. 4, but state law requires municipal clerks to allow early in-person voting on weekdays from the third Monday preceding an election to the Friday before it.

Burke and Walker are locked in a tight race. Both are trying to get their supporters to the polls early to boost turnout.

Burke says she chose to vote early to raise awareness that people can vote before Election Day.

Walker plans to vote Nov. 4.
