APPLETON (WLUK) -- In just two short weeks, it'll be Election Day. But if you want to skip the lines on Nov. 8, you can.
Tuesday marks the first day of in-person absentee voting.
Both Republicans and Democrats agree citizens should take the opportunity to vote early.

Voters were seen Tuesday walking into Appleton's City Hall to cast their ballots for the 2022 midterm election.
"Everybody should get out to vote. Now's our chance to vote," said Republican State Rep. Ron Tusler. "I think it's a great idea to go in and actually physically vote."
"If you have the time to vote today, or if you have time to vote before the election on Nov. 8, make sure you get out there," said Sara Rodriguez, Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor.
In the Senate race, polls show that Republican Sen. Ron Johnson has the lead over Democratic Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes.
Polling also shows the governor's race between Democratic Gov. Tony Evers and Republican Tim Michels is about even.
Tusler says the economy is headed in the wrong direction under Democrats.
"If you like the direction of the country, I guess you can vote that way or if you want to see some change, now's the time to go out there and do your part," said Tusler.
He continued, voicing concerns about the economy.
"Inflation is a major concern. I'm very scared of it; everybody is," said Tusler. "We're seeing all our prices skyrocket. Our gas prices are out of control."
But Rodriguez disagrees.
"Gov. Evers has really invested in our economy here in Wisconsin," said Rodriguez. "We have the lowest unemployment rate we've ever had with the most people working."
Disagreements aside, both parties say getting that in-person ballot in early will benefit you as a voter.
In-person absentee voting ends Nov. 6 -- two days before election day.
