MADISON, Wis. - Friday was the last day to cast absentee ballots for the recall general election and the last one came in at the Madison City Clerk's Office at 7:15 p.m. on Friday.

Employees said upward of 1,250 people voted on Friday -- the most of any day so far, officials said.
Overall, more than 182,000 people requested absentee ballots. In Madison, the clerk's office distributed more than 14,000 ballots.
