Early voting begins ahead of Wisconsin primary

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -

Early voting has begun in Wisconsin ahead of its April 5 primary.

Voters were able to cast ballots in person at local election offices beginning at 8 a.m. Monday. The first voter in line in the capital city of Madison, Andrew Powell, was there to vote for Donald Trump.

Powell said he is an independent who voted for President Barack Obama in 2012, but he thinks Trump will cut taxes for the middle class. Powell said Trump stands for "truth, justice and the American way."

Rachel Brenner voted for Democrat Hillary Clinton. Brenner said she's very worried about the tone of the race, noting that it hurts the candidates, country and ultimately, the world.

Early voting in Wisconsin runs through April 1.
