MADISON (NBC 26)  — For most communities in Wisconsin, early voting for the state's spring general election starts Tuesday.

Early voting will run through April 1, ahead of the April 5 election, during which time voters can request and cast absentee ballots at designated places like their municipal clerk’s office.

Voters registering for the first time should bring a photo ID and proof of residency to receive a ballot. Voters already registered should still bring a photo ID.

The April election will see some changes: unmanned drop boxes will not be allowed after a state Supreme Court ruling in February. Under the court’s ruling, voters can only return their own ballot — not ballots for family members or close friends, for example.
