Clinton, Michelle Obama make early voting push

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Election clerks across Wisconsin are preparing for long lines on Monday.

That is when in-person early voting begins.

The campaigns of both President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney are making strong pushes to get people to the polls starting Monday.

Former President Bill Clinton and first lady Michelle Obama are traveling across Wisconsin on Friday making the call for early voting.

Republicans including Sen. Ron Johnson, former U.S. Rep. Mark Green and national committee chairman Reince Priebus were on a bus tour taking them across the state over the weekend with the same purpose.

In 2008, 1-in-5 ballots in Wisconsin were cast absentee or early.

Polls show Obama and Romney in a dead heat this year, making the fight over every vote even more important.
