A record number of Madison voters have cast in-person absentee ballots ahead of the non-presidential February primary, city clerk Maribeth Witzel said Saturday.

As of Friday night, 849 people had cast in-person absentee ballots in advance of the Feb. 21 primary, Witzel said in a statement. 793 people voted in-person absentee in Madison in 2016, compared to 285 in 2015.

In-person absentee voting continues through Feb. 19, and expands to campus centers at University of Wisconsin-Madison and Edgewood College beginning next week.

State Superintendent of Instruction Tony Evers faces challengers Lowell Holtz and John Humphries in the primary.
